ive used PACKAGESITE recently as well, i used it like this: setenv PACKAGESITE ftp://ftp.ussg.iu.edu/pub/FreeBSD/ports/i386/packages-6-stable/Latest/ you have to specify it as far as the directory you want it to pull the files from. ../All/ would also be acceptable. now that im about to click send, i actually cant recall if i specified the trailing slash or not... so be prepared to reset and try again. good luck, -- Jonathan Horne http://dfwlpiki.dfwlp.org [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
