I used the prescribed method in the 'UPDATING' file when I first attempted to update to Xorg-7.2 on my system. There is this notation in the 'UPDATING' file: If your machine does NOT have any gstreamer ports installed, you can then run: # portupgrade -a However, if you DO have gstreamer ports installed, you must run: # portupgrade -a -x 'gstreamer*' Followed by: # portupgrade -Rr 'gstreamer*' Well, I do have it installed, so I followed the directions exactly. When it completed, the log file that was created showed that 'gstreamer' totally failed to update. I ran the script indicated in the 'UPDATING' file as well as deleting the 'man' pages as specified. I then simply reboot to insure that everything would start correctly. I then used portsnap to update the ports tree and finally used portmanager as thus: portmanager -u -p -l That updated over 400 ports (took awhile) but after that everything works fine. I guess I would recommend using the 'portupgrade' method as shown in the 'UPDATING' file; however, after going that route, you might want to run portmanager to insure that all of the ports were actually updated correctly. Just my 2¢. -- Gerard _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
