The above x11 ports install dependecies of their own so you end up with lots of x11 stuff you don't need. So that's why i use and like the other method. thank you for you opinions, v _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
