Sounds like you're on the right medicine. If you don't have a ton (that's 2000 in real world measures, or 1000 in beheader speak) of packages, you can always reinstall all of your packages to make sure you've caught every little thing (including things that future packages/ports may wish to link to). Well, you still can with a lot, but that might take a while. And, yes, rm -rf is a naughty naughty boy. Excepting the sense in which he always does exactly as he is told. -- -- _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
