Every once in a while I run across a machine that is not as fast as I would like it to be. As you know upgrading ports by having portupgrade compile them from source can take quite a while. FreeBSD tries to compile as many of the ports as they can and then put the packages [...]
Recently I noticed a problem doing a portsdb -Uu. Portupgrade was complaining about a missing bsd.port.options.mk. I tried cvsuping the ports, a make fetchindex, deleting all the ports and re cvsuping, but nothing worked. I’m not sure what the problem was, but it seemed to fix itself by upgrading to FreeBSD 7 from 6.3.
Wow, has it been that long? I have been pretty busy at work lately, but I need to get off my ass and start loading up some boxes with FreeBSD 7.0. I guess there isn’t much to write about when things aren’t broken.
