yes and no :P I like portsnap. faster.
For my ports, i run this script ( ~/bin/update_ports.sh)
sudo portsnap fetch && sudo portsnap update
( sudo is the port security/sudo and it allows for fine grained control
root-access to certain commands only )
There are 2 ports that will help you with management of your ports/packages -
ports-mgmt/portupgrade and ports-mgmt/portmaster ( which
means /usr/ports/ports-mgmt/portupgrade/ , etc... ) - they can tell you what
needs updating,etc (can't remember if it is in the handbook...)
Anyway, for my src tree:
1) my /etc/make.conf has :
SUPFLAGS=-g -L 2 -P m
the NO_PORTSUPDATE=true is so the std supfile doesn't pull in ports too. (maybe
i don't need it anymore, but it really doesn't break anything).
The /usr/local/etc/standard-supfile is :
## next line can have a date to peg src tree to a particular date :
*default release=cvs tag=RELENG_7
*default delete use-rel-suffix
and to update,
cd /usr/src && sudo make update
Mind you, I am tracking STABLE. and use this because i have a custom kernel
(just because i can :P ). For those of my machines which use GENERIC,i just use
freebsd-update as explained by Giorgios already.
Any issues, just shoot more emails :)
