Ok, I just did as suggested: ( Change this: ( *default release=cvs tag=RELENG_5_2_1_RELEASE ( ( for this ( *default release=cvs tag=RELENG_5_2_1
and ran cvsup again. This time, I successfully and quickly deleted every thing under /usr/src. There must be something wrong with my cvs tag. I read the notice in the handbook that says "Be very careful to specify any tag= fields correctly. Some tags are valid only for certain collections of files. If you specify an incorrect or misspelled tag, CVSup will delete files which you probably do not want deleted." Here is my supfile that just deleted everything under /usr/src: *default host=cvsup15.us.FreeBSD.org *default base=/usr *default prefix=/usr *default release=cvs tag=RELENG_5_2_1 *default delete use-rel-suffix *default compress src-all ports-all tag=. To keep up to date with 5.2.1, is that the correct tag? I'm reinstalling now . . .
