Hi, I shall certainly try installing a port instead. I am rather new to FreeBSD and am unclear as to how I can obtain new packages. When I run sysinstall, it does not offer new packages. Does that mean that the new packages are not meant to be installed? Or is it the case that I need to reconfigure it so that it looks in the correct place? If the latter, does sysinstall or pkg_add know to deleter the old version before installing the new one. Thanks for the replies. -Rahul --- paul beard <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote: > > On Nov 20, 2003, at 5:06 PM, Rahul Fernandez wrote: > > > Hi, I'm am running 4.9 release.
