about applying updates etc..
I installed a box for trial it was 5.1, I wanted to see if I could use ports to update openssh for a test examp. After the port installed I noticed that another version of openssh was installed on the system. I talked with a friend and he said that it was part of usr/src and I could update it by compiling the usr.bin version.. which was fine and worked. Here are my questions:
1) if there are two trees(lack of better words) why would ssh exist in both the system tree and the ports tree ? Wouldnt it be better to have it in the ports tree ?
2) I have used gentoo in the past and am curious if there is something simular to emerge -up world/system -- I would like to cvs the ports/sys and then be able to see if anything need upgrading .. is this possible ?
3) Say there was a update to openssh .. which would be the proper way to
update .. sync the sys tree and then just update ssh .. or sync the tree and recompile the system ? or remove the sys version and install the port version and update the port ?
I am very happy with freebsd .. Im still in the exploring stage .. The reasons for my questions is that I am a little weary of using freebsd in
production if I dont easily know when updates are avail, having to recompile the system everytime I need a patch for a service.
Thanks for helping me convert, rottie
