Hello to all, Not long ago, I ran cvsup "successfully". In the example cvs-supfile, the following opening lines exist:
# base=/var/db # This specifies the root where CVSup will store information # about the collections you have transferred to your system. # A setting of "/var/db" will generate this information in # /var/db/sup. Even if you are CVSupping a large number of # collections, you will be hard pressed to generate more than # ~1MB of data in this directory. You can override the # "base" setting on the command line with cvsup's "-b base" # option. This directory must exist in order to run CVSup. # # prefix=/home/ncvs # This specifies where to place the requested files. A # setting of "/home/ncvs" will place all of the files # requested in /home/ncvs (e.g., "/home/ncvs/src/bin", # "/home/ncvs/ports/archivers"). The prefix directory # must exist in order to run CVSup. I attempted running cvsup with "base" and "prefix" locations other than the ones stated above; and, it did not work. However, when I edited the supfile as described above, the whole process ran to completion, "successfully". Well, now I have an updated ports tree in /home/ncvs/ports instead of /usr/ports. So, my question this morning is what do I do with that? Do I treat /home/ncvs/ports as if it were /usr/ports? Do I copy the entire /home/ncvs/ports directory to /usr/ports for updated ports? Thank you in advance for directives. Z.
