Ok. But I part of my question to people , and reason for posting it here, is the old "Is anyone else seeing this". When/if you use portupgrade, does it do the same for you? Or is it just something that I happened some how to inherit on at least 2 of my machines?
I've noticed it, but I've also noticed that it does not happen every time. I had one case were I did a portupgrade of a specific set of components, and later I noticed that all the directories under /var/db/pkg had been modified. I did a 'portupgrade -f' of the exact same components, and this time the only directories which changed were the ones which were upgraded. While the behavior seems odd, it has not caused any problems for me, so I haven't done much investigation of it. (the above paragraph describes almost all of the investigation that I have done...) Warner Losh also stumbled into this, in a recent case where he ended up losing all subdirectories of /var/db/pkg due to a system crash during a portupgrade. -- Garance Alistair Drosehn = [EMAIL PROTECTED] Senior Systems Programmer or [EMAIL PROTECTED] Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute; Troy, NY; USA _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
