i do this from time to time, byjust making an edit to my ports-supfile. normally, there is a line like this in your ports-supfile: *default release=cvs tag=. i comment that line out, and put one right below it like this: # *default release=cvs tag=. *default release=cvs tag=. date=2007.06.01.01.01.01 as you can see, ive added a date 'keyword' (see man csup), and as you can likely see, the format is year.month.day.hour.minute.second. put in the date/time that you want to go back to, and then: csup -g -L 2 -i ports/java/diablo-jdk15 ports-supfile and just that one port should roll back to the date/time you specified in your ports-supfile. remember, to comment out your new date-line, and un-comment your original date-keyword-less line, so that the next time you csup you dont run your whole ports tree backwards in time. oh, and a good resource to find exactly what date you need to specify that you want to go back to (remember to choose a time *before* the change you want to avoid), is to check here: http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/cvsweb.cgi/ports/#dirlist find your port's Makefile, check the date of the revision, and step back a day, an hour, or whatever you need. 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]"
