You had the error build gtk20.

I think I would have done what you did. The problem is that it didn't work. Then you have to get out the scalpel and fix things. The -rf expat has to be done but some of them could be updated already. I always build packages and you can tell how far into an update you are by doing an "ls -lt" in /usr/ports/packages/All. When portupgrade dies, I also copy the reject list and paste it into a file that I can look at while I fix the ones that didn't build. It is the things you do when something doesn't work that makes a difference. Everyone has their own receipe for dealing with problems. I frequently use a shell script that I call pkgreq. It is # cat pkgreq #! /bin/sh cd /var/db/pkg pkg_info -R "$1*" | more You chmod it to 755 and run it like "pkgreq expat". It doesn't always work in the middle of an update, but it gives you a list you can check off as you build things. For example, any package built after expat would not need to be rebuilt and on a slow machine that can make a difference. My packages/All is running around 800 MB and I try to keep the dups downs. I also have an alias called search that is alias search 'portsearch -n $1' Portsearch was written by Mark Ovens and does a really nice job of formating the b/r-deps. It was written for 4.x and uses INDEX but you can modify it to use INDEX-5. On your machine it is probably in /usr/ports/Tools/scripts/README.portsearch /usr/ports/Tools/scripts/portsearch BTW, I updated my P-II 400 from kde-3.1.4 to 3.2.1. That took awhile and I was using packages. It also died a few times before I could get everything updated. I have "BATCH=YES" in /etc/make.conf so it builds/updates everything. There may be some bad remnants lying around but I can probably try the -rf expat and see if it works this time. When I did a startx, most of the kde application buttons were messed up. I finally did an rm -rf .kde* from my home directory and it started kde up clean like a new install. Then I had the buttons back. I have some fonts that I need but that is something I can do later.
