FreeBSD I've been using computers since I was quite young and have been using Unixlike OSes for about two years. Most of my life I've used Macs and only started using Windows and Unixlike OSes recently for programming. I'm good at learning OSes as long as they are documented. I've been using FreeBSD for about a year and a half.

Updating FreeBSD
by Isamoor on Wed 5th Nov 2003 20:52 UTC

Is there a way to update a FreeBSD via binaries? I know CVSup will sync all of ports and packages, but is there any command that would just go through and update the packages with new packages instead of compiling from ports?

I just ask because I spend enough time getting FreeBSD going in general that I don't want to wait for ever updating it with compiling it all.

Thanks for the nice article though.
