ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/ports/ports.tar.gz This points to the compressed file which contains the complete ports tree.
you mis-understood my question, I do not say I was trying to find the single compressed file of the complete ports tree. Here is my question again When I use cvsup to download the ports config files (by category), it does not display the directory path it's using on the server. How can I find the directory path cvsup defaults to using? The implied meaning here is what is the cvsup program using for an directory path? How can I find out what it is? -----Original Message----- From: Kevin D. Kinsey, DaleCo, S.P.

So, what's the discrepancy? Plus, what's wrong with the standard tools? #whereis foobar /usr/ports/misc/foobar OR #cd /usr/ports #make search key=foo KDK _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
