For anyone else who needs the latest BIND version, but not necessarily FreeBSD 4-STABLE :-) Remember that the ports tree is not branched.

This has been asked before. IIRC, it was Doug Barton who posted a link to a page that explains it all. Dig the archives for it. It shouldn't be hard to locate. > 3) If I install BIND 9 from the ports collection, can I uninstall BIND > 8 off of my system? Yes. Then you should also set NO_BIND=yes in your /etc/make.conf to avoid having BIND rebuilt & installed as part of your next upgrades. - Giorgos To Unsubscribe: send mail to [EMAIL PROTECTED] with "unsubscribe freebsd-questions" in the body of the message
