If you want to use portupgrade - yes, I think so. > I just want to upgrade to package-2.0.tbz without having > anything related to Ports ( /usr/ports) on my systems?

Portupgrade is not the tool to do this. > Or maybe with another tool on FreeBSD? Yes, as I said, pkg_add is used for this. You can even use it to overwrite the installed package (pkg_add -f). In order to achieve what I thought you intend to do, use the script I attached to you. It will download all the packages required. Then, transfer them to the other machine, and use pkg_add with the file name of the package you want to install. It will usually overwrite everything with the "wrong" version number that still does exist. -- Polytropon >From Magdeburg, Germany Happy FreeBSD user since 4.0 Andra moi ennepe, Mousa, ... _______________________________________________ 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"
