Hello all again,
I'm finally getting my arms around FreeBSD and the updating processes
and tools. But I'm still trying to come up with good
habits/methods/instructions for updating routines for both myself
colleagues who also want to switch to FreeBSD.
I now understand how to use cvsup to keep my src and ports tree
I know how to use pkg_add -r to install new sotware, or go into
/usr/ports/whatever to make install. I know how to do portupgrade to
upgrade my installed ports, how to pkg_version -v to see what's out of
date with my tree, and how to cronjob cvsup to keep my trees
still need to play more with make world and whatnot)
But what do you all out there in BSD land do to stay current as a
practice? I'm looking at this on two fronts: FreeBSD on our laptops
(There will be at least 3 of us with T23's, and I also plan on
most, if not all of my servers from Linux to FreeBSD).
If you have the resources, you should consider using a dedicated
machine for compiling.
With ~10 laptops, a bunch of workstations and about 20-25 servers
running FreeBSD we use 2 dedicated machines that does nothing but
download sources and compiles them. One is tracking 4.x-STABLE and
the other 5.x-RELEASE. Anyone can nfs mount choosen directories from
these machines and install the pre-compiled software.
It works extremely well, once the users have learned the correct
I've been contemplating this setup. I know I can use portupgrade to
build packages and then just install packages on other machines but
don't understand the details. Is it difficult to set up? Can you
point me to a web tutorial?
Its very basic, but it should get you started.
Sorry, wrong link.
