You don't need to completely delete and redownload the whole ports tree. And running 'portsdb -U' does exactly the same thing as running 'make index' -- no need to do it twice. And 'portsdb -u' will crash in exactly the same way as you've seen before. Just do this: # cvsup -g -L 2 ports-supfile # make index # setenv PORTS_DBDRIVER bdb1_hash # portsdb -u The 'portsdb -u' command is where the crash usually occurs. Once you've got past that stage, you're home and dry. Run portupgrade/portversion/pkgdb as usual. The bug is in the base system. A fix has been committed to 6-CURRENT: it should percolate down to 4-STABLE and 5-STABLE in the next few days.
