Re: Portupgrade wouldn't cause so much trouble if..

Wrong.. The problem isn't with my lack of knowledge of ports and portupgrade (I've been using FreeBSD for years and DragonFly since version 1.0) the problem is that the dfports tree is sadly out of date compared to the ports tree, making portupgrade problematic, at best.

The real problem, though, is the dependency on the FreeBSD ports tree (as the official source for DragonFly applications) to begin with. The FreeBSD developers couldn't really care less about problems that ports have on DragonFly, so things break in ports (for DF) faster than they can be fixed in dfports.
