As others said, BATCH turns off config target. But don't clutter /etc/make.conf with stuff like that, cause you will forget you put it there. make -DBATCH is short enough to type. It is however useful to inspect pkg-install files and set variables in either /etc/make.conf or /etc/(profile|login.conf). For example POSTFIX_DEFAULT_MTA will replace /etc/mail/mailer.conf when -DBATCH is set. Over time you'll pick up quite a few of these that save you doing the same thing all over. -- Mel Problem with today's modular software: they start with the modules and never get to the software part. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
