Or use portconfig -a My usual updating routine involves: - update the ports tree using csup - update the INDEX-x with the command "make index" in the directory "/usr/ports" - download all the tarballs upfront with the command "portfetch -a -v" - do all the configuration upfront with the command "portconfig -a" - do an unattended compile/install of the ports with the command "portmaster -a -u -d -v" The ports portconfig & portfetch are part of sysutils/bsdadminscripts. Portmaster can be found at ports-mgmt/portmaster. It is possible to write a simple shell script that automatically does all of the above. The only time attention is required is to enter data during the configuration process. Cheers...
