FYI: here is the man page for pkg_update: http://www.gsp.com/cgi-bin/man.cgi?section=1&topic=pkg_update I know this isnt a tutorial about pkg_update, its a start. On a side note, there are several good articles at www.onlamp.com/bsd about using portupgrade. And you can use packages with portupgrade by using the "-P" option. Just in case, here are the articles in question: Man page: http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/man.cgi?query=portupgrade&sektion=1&apropos=0&manpath=FreeBSD+5.2-RELEASE+and+Ports Portupgrade: http://www.onlamp.com/pub/a/bsd/2003/08/28/FreeBSD_Basics.html Port tricks: http://www.onlamp.com/pub/a/bsd/2003/08/07/FreeBSD_Basics.html Cleaning up ports: http://www.onlamp.com/pub/a/bsd/2001/11/29/Big_Scary_Daemons.html Cleaning and Customizing your Ports: http://www.onlamp.com/pub/a/bsd/2003/09/18/FreeBSD_Basics.html FYI: per the man page "Please read this manual page carefully and understand what you are doing with portupgrade."
