I've tried that several times with mirrors from all over the place (both the Brazilian ones, which should be optimal to me, and cvsupNN.freebsd.org and several others). I managed to get cvsup to update a very small part of the tree when I just switched from RELENG_4_8 to '.' as the tag (which is supposed to fetch current, right?). So I have no idea what to do now. :-( > (at the end of the page there is a mirror list). > > You could also use ports/sysutils/fastest_cvsup to find the most > responsive mirror for you. I tried that, too, but thanks for the notice. Anyone else has any advice, anything I should try at all? This is really annoying...
