Dear Rob, The ports collection you fetched is being worked on all the time. This can mean that some doesn't work from time to time. By the way: running 5 current is very new and thus very risky, are you sure you woudn't rather follow RELENG_5_2? You may find at sometime that cvsup and a build world that you system is broken. This can happen in 5-current but is less liky in releng 5.2. -- Alex Articles based on solutions that I use: http://www.kruijff.org/alex/FreeBSD/ _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
