I am more than one year FreeBSD user :), started with 7.0 and I have to used portupgrade but later I did change to portmaster which I like it but few day ago I had a problem (on FreeBSD 7.1) with update. Here is a link to the FreeBSD forum where I asked about a problem. Today I installed portupgrade and update was without problem. Are there some problem with portmaster on 7.1? Thanks. _______________________________________________ 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"
