How did you get that? i did cvsup with supfile given in example, /usr/share/examples/cvsup/cvs-supfile, and set base to /var/db and prefix to /home/ncvs as suggested and then cvsup -g -L 2 -h HOST /usr/share/examples/cvsup/cvs-supfile where HOST is the one that run fastest in local area around my country. > > My understanding was that you wanted to put the ports tree on one > machine (call it the "master"), then use it to install ports on other > machines that are local to the master.

Do you need it described in more detail? > my real problem is that i can not do cvsup from any machine in my office. but there is no problem at home. so i simply bring my notebook home and do cvsup as above. later on at the office, i want my other machine get /usr/src from my notebook but i can not and that's my problem. and frankly speaking my english is quite poor, i spend the whole week end to understand documents cited. unfortunately, that bring me more problem and that's why i revert back to my instinct with cvs. anyway, i really appreciate all answers to me and still hope that you will give me further helps. with best regards, psr > > Good luck. > -- > Lowell Gilbert, embedded/networking software engineer, Boston area > > http://be-well.ilk.org/~lowell/<http://be-well.ilk.org/%7Elowell/> > _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
