It does not depend upon other ports, external databases or languages, rather it’s been written in such a way as to make use of the information about a port’s dependencies, dependents, file locations and other information contained in to determine which ports to update.
The versions of software discussed in this post are as follows: Okay, let’s get started.
Open BSD's -stable ports tree is frozen on a per-version basis, other than for security updates or important fixes.
Free BSD is an advanced computer operating system used to power modern servers, desktops, and embedded platforms.
A large community has continually developed it for more than thirty years.
Its advanced networking, security, and storage features have made Free BSD the platform of choice for many of the busiest web sites and most pervasive embedded networking and storage devices.
It uses diff to display both files at the same time.
Lines that are new and will be added if the new configuration file is installed have a plus ( ) sign by them.
Things must be kept in sync with the base system version.It's recommended to properly set up sudo instead of using the root account, and the FAQ has instructions for that.To get your initial copy of the ports tree, you can either download the -stable tree directly via CVS like so: # cd /usr # ftp BSD/`uname -r`/gz # ftp BSD/`uname -r`/SHA256# signify -C -p /etc/signify/openbsd-`uname -r | cut -c 1,3`-x SHA256gz Signature Verified gz: OK # tar xzf gz # rm gz SHA256# cd ports # cvs -d [email protected]:/cvs -q up -r OPENBSD_`uname -r | sed 's/\./_/'` -Pd Be sure to choose a mirror that's close to you for better speeds.All commands are issued as the root user or by simulating the root user by using the command Now that the Ports Collection has been updated and portmaster installed, let’s check the installed ports against the updated Ports Collection to see whether any installed ports need to be updated.portmaster provides a way to list ports that need updating using the -L option: : Ports listed under this category have dependencies but are not depended upon by other ports.The tutorial is based on an installation in a Free NAS jail, but it should work in other scenarios.
