I gave the FreeBSD online Handbook a good read (of several chapters that walked the reader through sysinstall)... One of the prompts said to have 300mb or more of space for the ports.
At the FreeBSD.Org ports website, however, it says the total size of the tarball (tar/gzip) is 25mb. Is this a matter of compressed versus uncompressed? Why the discrepancy? By the way, thank you to the many erudite and friendly faces who responded to my lament -- I am happy to see a lot of devices now supported under 5.2.1!! -- Peter Leftwich, President & Founder Video2Video Services Box 13692, La Jolla, CA, 92039, USA http://Www.Video2Video.Com _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
