You can keep a local copy of the docs & update the sources for the docs with csup but you have to regenerate them with a make command after you have csup'd. The process is described within this page I just put up: http://www.shute.org.uk/misc/freebsd_uptodate.html There maybe some errors there or things I've missed, so apologies for that in advance. Any questions, just drop me an email. It's good practice IMO to have a locally updated copy of the handbook. You always need the handbook when your 'net connection is down ;) Regards, -- Frank Contact info: http://www.shute.org.uk/misc/contact.html _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
