Under /var/db/ports/.../ in a file named "options" [gonz...@inferna ~]% more /var/db/ports/hplip/options # This file is auto-generated by 'make config'. # No user-servicable parts inside! # Options for hplip-2.8.2_2 _OPTIONS_READ=hplip-2.8.2_2 WITH_GUI=true [gonz...@inferna ~]% > How to get a menu displayed again so you can see and check the options > you want? "make config" or "make rmconfig" as the other posters told you, or just go ahead and manually delete rm -f the options file prior to the "make install clean" Regards -- Blessings Gonzalo Nemmi _______________________________________________ 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"
