I didn't quite get that you were talking about just installing a linux-base. The reason is that sysinstall uses a FreeBSD package, but the port installs from whatever the Linux distro uses, in this case Fedora RPM packages. The port therefore requires the FreeBSD RPM port and its dependencies. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
