questions on UFS2 usage and snapshots

2004-06-21 Thread Joe Schmoe
Hi - a few questions about UFS2: 1. Is it dangerous to mount all 20 possible filesystem snapshots and _leave them mounted_ to use at any time ? What about automatically mounting all 20 snapshots at boot time ? 2. Related to the first question, it seems like I am getting space out of nowhere

missing ports; portsdb problem

2004-06-21 Thread Jim Arnold
I'm missing a few ports collections such as Japanese and Russian. Now when I try to run portsdb -Uu after CVSUPing the ports collection I get an error of a missing japanese port. The strange thing is that my cvsupfile is set to fetch ports-all. Why is it not pulling in the missing ports? I don't
