Doing a first time install of 5.1. The ports packages look comprehensive and very up-to-date. I'm coming from the linux world, having used it exclusively for the past year. I have the manual and will certainly read it before perfoming the install to hopefully make the process easier.
I found the following in a FreeBSD article post and wanted any comments from users who had done a number of installs as to the logic/soundness of following the steps outlined below: Install a minimal base system and the ports collection. Install and configure cvsup and portupgrade. Update your source tree and ports tree. Make buildworld, kernel, installworld. Run portupgrade -a. Reboot your nice, clean, up-to-date system and start installing apps you want to use. Does this make sense? Any additional steps and is the ordering of the steps sound? Thanks for your feedback. -- Trey Sizemore [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
