There might be something to be said for doing it "my way",
after all, Frank Sinatra made a fortune in that manner... </tongue'n'cheek>
You could join in the FreeBSD tradition, though, and do it the Right Way(tm) ...
An excellent tutorial/article by Dru Lavigne....
</only slightly-less-tongue-in-cheek> ;-)
OK, after reading this tutorial, here is MY new WAY.
/usr/local/bin/cvsup -g -L 2 /root/cvsup/ports-supfile portsdb -Uu portversion -l "<" [to see if any ports will be upgraded] portupgrade -arR [so dependencies will be installed, if necessary] [NB. If ever asked to run pkgdb -F, do it]
Taking into consideration other issues or options pointed out on the web tutorial, will this be a good strategy from now on for performing good port upgrades?
