cron jobs generally need their PATH set explicitly, as I don't believe they source even /etc/profile....so it's always a good idea to use explicit pathnames...I have two questions, the first regarding CVSup and cron jobs, the second about port upgrade.
I've gotten cvsup working correctly. It is following
5_1_RELENG and "." for ports. I want to do a daily
check using crontabs and have created one under root.
However, my daily mail says that it can't find cvsup.
IS this just a simple fix by putting in the full path
or am I missing something?
I was following the portupgrade tutorial for
upgrading your installed ports at onlamp.
I ran "portupgrade -arR" about 9pm on Thursday. It is
now 5pm on Friday and it's STILL running.
My box isn't the fastest on the block, but it is a
Dual P2 300 (running SMP) with 256 megs of RAM and am
running X , Apache2, and PHP aside from the standard
I guess my question is more a concern in that I
inadvertantly installed ALL the ports in the
collection. Did I? Manning portupgrade, the -a says
"upgrade all INSTALLED" with the "r"'s being forward
and backwards recursive, but 20 hours?
Highly possible if you have software like X and OpenOffice installed....
