We were having exactly this discussion over on [EMAIL PROTECTED] just now. Actually, for a fresh install on a system without any X ports already installed, you're better off doing this: mkdir /usr/X11R6 sh /usr/ports/Tools/scripts/mergebase.sh and then carry on installing everything. Or you can do the following by hand (which just duplicates the effect mergebase.sh ultimately has): cd /usr ln -sf local X11R6 cd /etc echo local_startup="/usr/local/etc/rc.d" >> rc.conf echo local_periodic="/usr/local/etc/periodic" >> periodic.conf sed -i.save -e '/X11R6/s/^/#/' manpath.config Cheers, Matthew - -- Dr Matthew J Seaman MA, D.Phil. 7 Priory Courtyard Flat 3 PGP: http://www.infracaninophile.co.uk/pgpkey Ramsgate Kent, CT11 9PW -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v2.0.3 (FreeBSD) Comment: Using GnuPG with Mozilla - http://enigmail.mozdev.org iD8DBQFGWq2I8Mjk52CukIwRCLMoAJ4iCk3Evc4xP+lZ3JcZZNkza0L80gCeLzSN CWT86BnryY6BeEno22PiV3g= =MpX0 -----END PGP SIGNATURE----- _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
