Keep your supfile simple like the examples and don't include features such as cvsroot-all that you don't understand the side effects. If you want a local mirror, install cvsup-mirror but you need to understand the consequences of what you are doing before you try that. The current cvsup-mirror is over 2GB and you are going to download all of it. /usr/src for RELENG_4 is around 300MB and that is much easier to deal with than a 2GB system that you still need to run cvsup or cvs against to use. Since you are already asking for src-all, you just quadrupled the amount of data you are going to transfer each time you run cvsup. I use a cvsup script for each of those processes (src-all, ports-all, and doc-all) because I don't believe they need to be updated at the same frequency. I have a local mirror and feed 6 other computers from it. I think the break even point is 2 and you don't see any gain until you have more than 3. If you install a mirror on a single computer, you are downloading everything for all of the branch tags. > > What would change for 4.9 current?

You need to read about the branch tags on http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/cvs-tags.html RELENG_4 is stable, which is now going by the name 4.10-STABLE. There is now a RELENG_4_10_0_RELEASE, which never changes, and RELENG_4_10, which is only updated with critical fixes and security advisories. -- Kent Stewart Richland, WA http://users.owt.com/kstewart/index.html _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
