The main culprits are some of the the KDE applications which never seem to have up to date precompiled packages available when I need them. The 90 hour run was using "portupgrade -P" to use packages wherever possible. Some of the ports were very heavy going, with kdepim taking 11 hours to compile. Admittedly it is a lot of bloat but I've never regretted switching from MS Windows to FreeBSD, despite the tedious portupgrades. -- Mike Clarke _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
