The FreeBSD Update client does that automatically, using DNS SRV magic. >> and how much space does it need? That depends upon how many security updates are issued. Hopefully not much space. :-) More seriously, the /var/db/freebsd-update/ directory holds the new and old versions of any files which are updated, in order to allow you to rollback security updates (not that I ever expect this to be necessary). As a wild guess, I'm going to say that this is likely to add up to about 20MB/year. > On a related note, I already have the freebsd-update port installed. > Should I uninstall it and use the one that's part of the OS, or keep > going as I've been doing? Uninstall the port. The new FreeBSD Update code in the base system is much better.
