After running cvsup, you'll have a collection of Makefiles, patches etc. under /usr/ports all set up to download the source and build the latest versions of any software you want to install. Running cvsup is just the preliminary to the whole process of updating any ports that are out of date. If you've installed portupgrade(1) [ports/sysutils/portupgrade] bringing all your installed ports up to date pretty much boils down to: cvsup -g -L 2 ports-supfile portsdb -Uu pkgdb -Fvu portupgrade -rRNia [the last two commands are interactive as shown: they'll prompt you to confirm any actions that modify your system] Cheers, Matthew -- Dr Matthew J Seaman MA, D.Phil. 26 The Paddocks Savill Way PGP: http://www.infracaninophile.co.uk/pgpkey Marlow Tel: +44 1628 476614 Bucks., SL7 1TH UK To Unsubscribe: send mail to [EMAIL PROTECTED] with "unsubscribe freebsd-questions" in the body of the message
