For my FreeBSD 4.8 PC, my supfile for cvsup contains:
*default host=cvsup2.freebsd.org *default prefix=/usr *default base=/usr *default release=cvs tag=RELENG_4 *default delete use-rel-suffix *default compress ports-all
When I run "cvsup -L2 supfile", it deletes all the ports. Why is that?
I then have reinstalled the ports (from "/stand/sysinstall"). I also changed the supfile to:
*default host=cvsup2.freebsd.org *default prefix=/usr *default base=/usr *default release=cvs tag=. *default delete use-rel-suffix *default compress ports-all
(Only the "tag" has changed from "RELENG_4" to the dot ".").
This works; well, at least the ports are not deleted, but updated. But updated to what?
Why can I not use the RELENG_4 for my 4.8 ports selection?
Will the dot update my ports to the ports of 5.x series? If so, will that cause trouble for my 4.8 system?
What should I do to safely update my ports?
