Hi all, FreeBSD paqi.smithi.id.au 5.5-STABLE FreeBSD 5.5-STABLE #0: Sun Nov 19 20:22:12 EST 2006 [EMAIL PROTECTED]:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/PAQI5S_2 i386
On 4th December, after a recent portsnap fetch/update, I ran portupgrade -anPP to prefetch all available packages for a well overdue upgrade of all ports on this box, most dating from 5.4-RELEASE CDs <blush> Apart from taking ~7 hours to fetch ~550MB for ~220 packages, and except for a few non-packageable ports, that went fine. Then on 10th December, after much study of UPDATING and adopting the procedures there for KDE, I ran portupgrade -aPP on those packages, which apart from updating PHP4 then installing PHP5 on top of it (which I'll take up later) went better than I'd dared to dream, taking ~8 hours. Awesome work guys! However after then running portsnap fetch/update to pick up anything new since the 4th, and after upgrading portupgrade, ran another portupgrade -anPP to pick up available packages for the ~35 ports newly out of date, intending to finish off by building any remaining ports from sources. I was glad I'd specified -PP .. every fetch from $subject directory failed. Checking manually, then and again tonight, I see that indeed only the versions of files that were (correctly) current at 4th December are still there now. The latest file date there says 17th November. Is this likely a temporary glitch, or do -stable packages only get updated to match the current ports tree after some expectable delay?
