Hi,

The missing switch is the -R parameter of portupdate.
I.e. portupgrade -vnyNbR

Subject
portupgrade question






Hello,

yesterday, having to install kdeadmin, I issued the following command

                 portupgrade -vnyNb -l file kdeadmin-3.5.10

Noting that "n" is negated by "y" (my mistake), the result of this command 
was 

                 + print/cups-base
                 + print/xdvik
                 + print/cm-super
                 + print/teTeX
                 + sysutils/kdeadmin3

but I expected portupgrade to also upgrade some packages on which kdeadmin 

depends on (required packages ?). Am I wrong somewhere ? Is the order on 
which the arguments are given relevant ?

To get the result I needed,  I then issued the following command 

                 portupgrade -bRv -l file2 kdeadmin-3.5.10 

and the result, as expected, was 

                 + converters/libiconv (libiconv-1.13)
                 + audio/libogg (libogg-1.1.3,4)
                 + audio/celt (celt-0.5.2)
                 + audio/libvorbis (libvorbis-1.2.0_3,3)
                 + audio/flac (flac-1.2.1)
                 + devel/glib20 (glib-2.20.3)
                 + audio/libsndfile (libsndfile-1.0.20)
                 + audio/arts (arts-1.5.10_1,1)

Thanks,

d
