An excellent tutorial/article by Dru Lavigne....

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?


Yes - this is more or less how I do mine.

OK Curtis, What the heck are you doing, we just discussed this, Chris, I know better than this and so do you. You guys are supposed to be doing it my way. I think you're just trying to get in good graces with the list so you show up here instead of getting filtered into the bit bucket.


Hahahahaha - No friggin' comment!
