hehehe - I didn't either but it happens :). I created an alias called pkgrep that does a "pkg_info | grep $1". There are a number of things that are easier with an alias. You don't make as many typo's and wonder what happened. You need to cvsup ports-all with a "tag=.". The easy way is to update your ports, run "portsdb -uU" to get a new set of indexs and get used to using portupgrade. It makes being consistant a lot easier :). > > also I am cvsup'ing the stable files every night. > > how can I guarantee that I am receiving the 4.9-stable files? > > this is the entry I am using: > > --- snip --- > *default release=cvs tag=RELENG_4 > --- snip --- > > should that work - how can I verify that its the 4.9 kernel and > system files I am receiving? Ah, you can cvsup as many times as you want and nothing changes until you do a buildworld, build[install]kernel, reboot to single user mode and installworld. The exact sequence is always in your /usr/src/UPDATING. It sounds like you have most of the pieces but they just aren't quite connected.
