Each one offers some unique features, read the man pages to see if you need specific functionality that isn't present in one of them (I doubt it). Mostly it comes down to your preference. I personally recommend portmaster because it's a shell script and requires no additional software to be installed. To update everything on your system just run 'portmaster -ad'. The -a flag automatically updates all out-of-date ports, -d removes old distfiles without asking. - Max _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
