If you still have xorg-7.2 packages this is the fastest: (cd /usr/ports/x11/xorg && make all-depends-list)|xargs pkg_delete -f env PKGDIR=/path/to/packages/All pkg_add /path/to/packages/All/xorg-7.2.tbz If not, you need to revert your ports tree to pre-xorg 7.3 AFTER the pkg_delete command, using a reldate in your ports-supfile. Unfortunately since the xorg-modular joy there's no good way to make portupgrade ignore an upgrade via HOLD_PKGS, so you need to go back to manual upgrading, deciding port by port what you can upgrade and don't use -R or -r in case a dep on X is pulled in.  I still have to see the advantage of it, cause so far 1 or 2 drivers have been updated independently and the 200+ more paths in /var/db/pkg plus the inability to hold an xorg installation from portupgrade -a outweigh this significantly. </bitchin'> -- Mel _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
