There is a port called portupgrade which has the same goal as the Debian apt system. You are better of using this if you like to upgrade you installed packages.

Its likly that using packages isn't that high on the agenda since installing application by compiling isn't that hard to do with the ports system. i.e. cd /usr/port/www/mozilla; make install && make clean or portinstall www/mozilla -- Alex Articles based on solutions that I use: http://www.kruijff.org/alex/index.php?dir=docs/FreeBSD/ _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
