System: Updating the ports collection

(last edit: 2002-07-30) You need to have cvsup installed. Check if you do with the following comand: user@host#which cvsup this should give you somethink like: '/usr/local/bin/cvsup' If not check the ports and install cvsup. Then you need to make a sup file. You can find an example at /usr/share/examples/cvsup/ports-supfile this is my version: *default tag=. *default host=cvsup.nl.freebsd.org *default prefix=/usr *default base=/usr *default release=cvs delete use-rel-suffix compress ports-all Put the above text in a file called 'supfile'. Now you can update the ports collection by typing (as root): cvsup supfile And sitback and wait and wait and wait (this might take a while)
