Hi folks, I seem to have opened a (new) can of worms by cvsuping the ports tree and doing #portupgrade -Ra
which moved me from XFree86 4.2.0 to 4.3.0 (meta-port). I'd most like to find out what the problem is eg, see http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=xfree86&m=106537114610303&w=2 but was wondering if I could work around it by backing out the upgrade. I know I can back out an upgrade to the OS by cvsuping to an older date and making world. But how does one back out a port as complex as X? Is it as simple as downloading an appropriately old version of the meta-port makefile, eg from http://www.FreeBSD.org/cgi/cvsweb.cgi/ports/x11/XFree86-4/Makefile say revision 1.142 and #portupgrade -fR XFree86 or perhaps I would need to get older versions of all the files in the meta port? Or would I need older versions of all files in all the dependencies also? I suppose I could cvsup my whole ports tree to the date of the older meta port makefile, do the portupgrade, then cvsup the ports tree again to get back up to date, refusing changes to the x11 category. Anyone with hints or suggestions other than 'restore disk from backup', or 'do clean install on new disk'? TIA. Alex __________________________________ Do you Yahoo!? The New Yahoo!
