I really don't care about the latest and shiniest programs. So, I do mind building from ports. I just want to download 20-30 packages along with their dependecies. I think I've found a relatively cheap way to do just that, I am going to use unionfs to create a "replica" of my system, mount an empty fs on $JAIL/var/db/pkg, fire up "jail $JAIL" and pkg_add -Kr $everything_i_want in there. //a few of minutes later Yet to my big surprise(and disappointment) pkg_add -Kr does not keep the dependencies, but only the requested file e.g. pkg_add -rK bash, downloads all depedencies, installs bash and deletes all packages but bash. Not much of a progress... _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
