I hope this is an appropriate list for this type of question; please let me know if another list is more suitable to newbie-type quesions.
I've been using Linux for a long time, and every year or so I have a crack at *BSD to see what I'm missing. But it never works out. So, trying again... I think I want to start with FreeBSD 6.2 with Xorg upgraded to 7.3. I tried to accomplish this over the course of several installs. In the end, I decided this should work: a) install 6.2, plain User setup (NOT with Xorg, and NOT with ports) b) portsnap fetch c) portsnap extract d) cd to /usr/ports/x11/xorg and make install clean When I do pkg_version -v, it SEEMS to have installed the xorg that I want. Is this the right procedure to start with? Should I have set up that vulnerability database? Any advice appreciated.
