Tks You can choose to update only a part of the ports collection, either by using cvsup refuse files or by specifying "sub"-collections in the cvsup file. See the end of the /usr/share/examples/cvsup/ports-supfile for those. However 9 of 10 posts on ports@ regarding failed `make index` are because the poster has a partially cvsup'ed ports collection and because of that he runs into trouble. The time difference is not big; the INDEX-5 file on your system keeps track of ports and their dependencies and is by various pkg_* directly and port* tools indirectly. Also if you want a fast cvsup use `cvsup -s supfile` ; "-s" wound make cvsup to do less checks on you machine and the time will be significantly smaller; but from time to time do a "complete" cvsup (I do it before building the index). -- IOnut Unregistered ;) FreeBSD "user" _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
