Right. > cvsup for forts doesn't take much even on modem. The initial cvsup will take a little while, but after that, cvsupping via dial-up is no problem. I am constrained by dial-up at home, and while I no longer have the "instant gratification" I had with cable (and yes, distfiles do take awhile to download), I am able to live with fetching ports via dial-up, however, for something really big (XFree86, etc.) you may want to fetch the distfiles from a faster machine. -- Joshua Women are more easily and more deeply terrified ... generating more sheer horror than the male of the species. -- Spock, "Wolf in the Fold", stardate 3615.4 _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
