I used to have issues with portupgrade as well. I traced my problem to using the wrong portupgrade. I have been using portupgrade for several months without an issue ( except the Xorg 7 transition ). Make sure to use
/usr/ports/ports-mgmt/portupgrade and not /usr/ports/sysutils/portupgrade I also follow the following port method, as per the handbook suggestion: portsnap fetch portsnap update method. This has worked without an issue for me. I am running FreeBSD 6.2-RELEASE-p8. I hope this helps. --------------------------------- Antonio Arredondo PhD Student NMSU Computer Science Department http://www.cs.nmsu.edu/~aarredon/ --------------------------------- > On Sat, 27 Oct 2007, E.
