Lonnie,FreBSD 4.10 Release CVSUP-MIRROR v. 1.3_2 freshly installed.
I got the cvsup-mirror port installed without any errors. The CVSUPD daemon is running. I can connect to my mirror from another server. When I try to update a ports collection (i.e. ports-editors) is will spit out the error:
"Collection "ports-editors" release "cvs" is not available here"
I did not specifiy any of the default collections during the install (i.e. src, www, gnats) because all I want to make available via cvsupd is the ports collections. However, since the install never asked me anything about ports, I'm hesitant that I have not properly made them available via cvsup.
I've been throught the FreeBSD Handbook, and the "cvsup.org" website - absolutely no help at all. I've also searched through the /usr/ports/net/cvsup-mirror directory just to find absolutely no documentation whatsoever.
All I want to do is run a mirror so I can keep the ports trees on my other BSD servers up-to-date.
Can you please help me?
-just a little frustrated

I didn't see any cvsup files so let me see what I can do by working backwards with you...
I have cvsup-mirror running on one of my machines mirroring the entire cvsup collection.
Normally I update the entire ports tree but I tried to update just ports-editors. It appeared to work. This is the cvsupfile I ran:
*default delete use-rel-suffix
I did not get the error message you mentioned until I changed the collection name to something bogus. e.g. I changed ports-editors to ports-editors-junk.
This makes me think you are not mirroring, or not mirroring correctly, the ports tree.
The supfile that goes with my cvsup-mirror looks like this: $ more /usr/local/etc/cvsup/supfile # # Standard supfile for CVSup FreeBSD mirrors. # *default delete use-rel-suffix umask=002 cvs-all release=cvs prefix=prefixes/FreeBSD.cvs gnats release=current prefix=prefixes/FreeBSD-gnats.current www release=current prefix=prefixes/FreeBSD-www.current mail-archive release=current prefix=prefixes/FreeBSD-mail.current distrib release=self prefix=prefixes/distrib.self $
I weould check to see what you have in the spot where I have cvs-all.
There is a discussion in section A.5.5 of the FBSD Handbook that talks about the various file collections. It is at: http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/cvsup.html
You should note the warning about the need to ALWAYS update ports-base. Even if you are not updating the whole ports tree.
