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 without cvs
by Neil on Wed 12th Nov 2003 16:51 UTC

It is possible to update the ports tree without CVS. I do it frequently at work, where the firewall means I can't run cvsup.

Grab this, unpack it in /usr, and you're set.
