It's no problem to install cvsup-without-gui from ports or use the csup utility (I think it was already present in 5.2) to use the # make update way from within /usr/src - with correctly setup supfiles, of course, but that's quite easy. Put this into /etc/make.conf: SUP_UPDATE=yes SUP=/usr/bin/csup SUPFLAGS=-g -L 2 SUPHOST=cvsup.freebsd.org SUPFILE=/etc/sup/standard.sup Or change the SUP line, if you've installed cvsup-without-gui to SUP=/usr/local/bin/cvsup Then create /etc/sup directory and create the following standard.sup file (which controls what will be subject to update): *default host=cvsup.freebsd.org *default base=/var/db *default prefix=/usr *default release=cvs tag=RELENG_5_2_0 *default delete use-rel-suffix *default compress src-all You can change cvsup.freebsd.org into a mirror near you. Check the correct setting for RELENG_5_2_0 (equals 5.2-RELEASE, if I see this correctly) or any other version you want to obtain (such as 5.2 with security patches, latest of 5.x, generally latest). -- 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"
