thank you in advance -Kevin Please disable "Verbose" logging When logs (server or client app) are requested for an investigation, please do NOT turn on "verbose" logging unless it is explicitly requested.Verbose logging makes things much more difficult in the majority of cases.This tutorial continues from where we left the minimal installation in my previous post, so I am assuming you already have a working Free BSD box. The previous command should download the packages from the remote repo (the -r option stands for “remote”) and install them. Note that the rehash command will not show any output.If everything goes according to plan you should output that resembles the following: Fetching ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/Free BSD/ports/i386/packages-7.2-release/Latest/.. Fetching ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/Free BSD/ports/i386/packages-7.2-release/All/ca_root_nss-3.11.9_2.. To download the ports simply change directory to /usr, and use the curl command with the -O option.
I'd appreciate any assistance in understanding the steps to upgrade.
For example, lets install “sudo” (a useful tool that allows you to run commands “as” root): Some packages will display a menu with build options when installing them. To check/uncheck boxes use the space bar and when you are done tab your way to the [Ok] button and press enter.
The sudo package should display the following menu: Note: Packages can take quite a while to install depending on the number of dependencies needed to build the program.
Installing ports normally involves issuing only two commands: changing directory to the required port in the collection and issuing the “make install clean” command.
Well, “make install clean” is actually three commands, make will compile the software, install will unsurprisingly install it on the system and clean will clean up after the installation.
