I am not %100 sure, but I think you might have to do it manually. I don't think FreeBSD keeps records of what was originally chosen in /stand/sysinstall for distribution sets on a first-time installation. If you are just talking about software installed using the ports/packages collection just do "pkg_info -a". Generally, this reflects what exists on the system at the current moment. But there are no guarantees, since things can be erased manually. But really finding out what was installed would be a pretty involved thing, becuase you can't guarantee the person who owned it last had not added, removed or modified anything outside the record-keeping mechanisms since he/she first installed the OS. --Allan _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
