Someone can probably suggest something more optimal, but FWIW, here's my tedious manual procedure for installing ports without a network connection: 1. Try to compile the port, up to the point where it complains 2. Press Ctrl-C, interrupting the compilation 3. Make a note of the name of the missing file 4. Go to different computer with network connection, carrying floppy or CD-R 5. Download missing file from ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/distfiles/ 6. Transfer it to /usr/ports/distfiles on target machine using floppy or CD-R 7. Lather, rinse, and repeat from step one until compilation no longer complains For only the ltmdm port (Lucent winmodem driver), this should not be an astonishing amount of work, and afterwards you can install your ports in style like the cool kids do. :) Good luck, -Jan Christian _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
