portsdb -Fu runs `make fetchindex`, grabbing the INDEX* file from whatever server you've told it to go to, and then rebuilds/updates the portsdb from that. So it's possible that with your csup you've obtained a port that is newer than the one recorded in the INDEX* file, when it was built on the remote server with an older ports tree some time ago. This is usually harmless. If it causes problems, and you can't wait for a fresh INDEX* file to be built remotely, or you have a modified ports tree that departs from the usual one so much that it makes sense to have your own INDEX*, then you can run "make index" in /usr/ports, or wherever your PORTSDIR is, and then portsdb -u. This is usually a lengthy process, unless you've stripped out large parts of your ports tree. >also noticed a few times it seemed like it was upgrading the same version(s) >over again.

Out of curiosity, do you remember the ports involved? b. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
