I've been using the ports collection happily for a couple of years now, and portsdb -Uu has correctly made me an index once. I believe it's redundant, though, to immediately follow a cvsup with a portsdb -Uu, as the cvsup takes care of the index for you. I wouldn't worry too much; I've seen other folks recommend recvsupping and trying again; It should be ok to ignore it; at least I always have. -- Joshua "Mmmm, unguarded breakfasts; the sweetest taboo." -- Homer Simpson _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
