If you're talking about the OS itself, you can simply follow the instractions in the handbook, where it explains the upgrading of the system (including steps like make update, make buildworld and buildkernel, mergemaster, and make installkernel and installworld, maybe KERNCONF). For the ports, you enter the port's directory, run # make deinstall and then # make # make install # make clean (you can of course combine it to "make install clean"). If you want to automate it, you can use tools from the portmgmt/ category, such as portupgrade or portmaster. <--- I think that is what you're searching for. But you're talking about software that is not supported through the FreeBSD ports system, you need to rely on what the source creator gave to you (install / update / deinstall scripts). -- Polytropon >From Magdeburg, Germany Happy FreeBSD user since 4.0 Andra moi ennepe, Mousa, ... _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
