If you have the portupgrade package installed (which is a good idea anyway), you can use pkg_deinstall -R, which will deinstall all packages required by the given package as well. It will fail deinstalling packages required by other packages, which is precisely what you want. pkg_delete -r imageindex-1.0.6 will recursively delete packages that depend on imageindex, not the packages required by it. -Ruben > Can anyone help me? > > Thank you, > Chris > > > _______________________________________________ > [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list > http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions > To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]" _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
