Well - if I understand this, you want to use X.org in place of XFree86 - if this is correct, I would assume you install eht X.org meta-port as you mentioned. I don't know if X.org "needs" anything from XFree, so I can't answer that. The next thing is simply update the ports tree (that inturn updates the X.org meta when needed) then run portupgrade after the ports ttree update. See the man page for portupgrade for the parms you want. I myself use -arR Once you have run portupgrade, and if by chance the meta-port did get updated, portupgrade will bring that up to the current build for FreeBSD. I may have left out some steps, but this is the jist of it. -- Best regards, Chris -- This message has been scanned for viruses and dangerous content by MailScanner, and is believed to be clean. _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
