FreeBSD "It is my great pleasure and privilege to announce the availability of FreeBSD 6.1-RELEASE. This release is the next step in the development of the 6.X branch, delivering several performance improvements, many bugfixes, and a few new features. These include: Addition of a keyboard multiplexer. This allows USB and PS/2 keyboards to coexist without any special options at boot. Many fixes for filesystem stability. High load stress tests are now run successfully on a regular basis as part of the normal FreeBSD QA process. Automatic configuration for man Bluetooth devices, as well as automatic support for running WiFi access points. Addition of drivers for new ethernet and SAS and SATA RAID controllers."

RE: RE: Gnome 2.14 on FreeBSD

A easy way of upgrading to gnome2.14 would be:

#portsnap fetch
#portsnap extract
#portsnap update
#portupgrade -rR x11/gnome2

Not true. The correct way would be (RTFM => /usr/ports/UPDATING):

portsnap fetch
portsnap update
pkgdb -Ff
portupgrade -o net/avahi -f howl
portupgrade -o x11/gnome-screensaver -f xscreensaver-gnome
portupgrade -a

portupgrade -a

This ugrades all packages (not only x11/gnome2).
If that is intentional would a "portupgrade -arR" (install upgrades of dependancies also) not be more desirable?
