>====== >#!/bin/sh ># ># Update source, docs and ports > >LOCAL_DIR="$(pwd)" You don't need to change directories if you change some of the commands slightly, so the above line and the last line are unnecessary. > >cd /usr/share/examples/cvsup >csup ports-supfile The example scripts shouldn't be run as-is: you need to edit them first, or issue more flags on the command-line. For instance, for the ports-supfile you need at least to either change the *default host ... line to use the server of your choice, or issue a -h flag with the right server in your script. (The choice of the right server can make a substantial difference in how long this process takes -- you can experiment with different servers, and/or use the sysutils/fastest_cvsup port to find one that works well for you. Not every server is updated at the same interval.) Also, you can avoid changing directories by just using a full path to the cvsup script file. So, for example, you should replace the above two lines in the script with something like: csup -L 2 -h cvsup1.ca.FreeBSD.org /usr/share/examples/cvsup/ports-supfile I prefer to increase the verbosity with the -L switch, so that I have a better idea of what's happening if something goes wrong. All of this is covered in the FreeBSD Handbook. Also, you need not use csup(1) at all if you prefer to use portsnap(8) instead. >cd /usr/ports >make fetchindex >/usr/local/sbin/portsdb -u You don't need all of the three previous lines: you can just run 'portsdb -F' or 'portsdb -Fu' instead. Also, these lines and the line below require one of the portupgrade ports to be installed, but I guess you know that. If you're not planning on using portupgrade, then don't use the portsdb or pkgdb commands, but just run: 'make -C /usr/ports fetchindex' instead. >/usr//local/sbin/pkgdb -uvF >cd $LOCAL_DIR As I mentioned, you don't need this last line. b. _______________________________________________ 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"
