Is it alright to prune the Ports tree - and still do updates later. I am running 4.8 stable and recently did a full Ports tree update using CVSUP. This generates several questions. 1) I took the advice of Michael Urban's book and upgraded from the "Head" of the source tree rather than from that for 4.8 - did I really want to do that? Does it matter for a Ports only updating? 2) The tree is getting pretty big - result, lots of files. My hard drive is not very big - it is down to a few hundred inodes (file handles) within the usr directory. Can I prune the tree on my hard drive without compromising future updates? If it helps, my machine is not using X only command mode so there are lots of Ports that will never be made.
Thanks for any help that can be offered. Graham/ _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
