FreeBSD We've all heard the age old argument second only to the vi vs. emacs religious wars: FreeBSD Vs Linux. As a long time linux user, I decided that is was time I spent some time on the other side of the fence to see if it was any greener. Oh, and by the way, vi rules.

Updating ports tree
by njm on Tue 11th Nov 2003 22:11 UTC

One inaccuracy from this article: there is a way to update/download the ports tree directly after installation, without having to install CVSup. csv is installed in the base system, and FreeBSD has a number of anonymous CVS servers from which the ports tree can be easily obtained. I actually use this method on my laptop, since it is old, slow, and relatively low on disc space... I don't like the idea of Modula 3 sitting around on my hard drive if I have a choice.
