Dear all, I am now full into planning the 7.0-RELEASE to 7.1-RELEASE upgrade. I know that at the end of the day it will also mean upgrading all ports (portupgrade -af). I have one port - mailman - which I have customized a lot and do not really want to upgrade it as it will most likely mean I will have to hack a few files again.
What options do I have so that I do not break the setup? I am thinking of: 1/ backing up the hacked files and restoring them later (but I will overwrite the newer files with older ones perhaps breaking something). 2/ making them read only (but the end result will be the same and upgrading as root I will overwrite them anyway). And that would be it. My wisdom ends here. Is there any option to survive the ports upgrade? :) If not, I guess I will just have to hack Mailman files again after the upgrade... -- Zbigniew Szalbot www.slowo.pl www.fairtrade.net.pl _______________________________________________ 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"
