Using CVSUP or CSUP to update ports in FreeBSD

Page history last edited by trunasuci 15 years, 3 months ago

CVSUP ( or CSUP for FreeBSD with latest version ) is tools to keep update your cvs tree, especially in this case is ports collection.. I start to use it when i 1st encounter with FreeBSD in early 2000 till now..


1- copy the supfile to your folder

trunasuci# cp /usr/share/examples/cvsup/ports-supfile .


2- edit the ports-supfile using ee ( or vi or any_text_editor_u_like )

trunasuci# ee ports-supfile


edit just this lines, make it look like this:

*default host=cvsup.Free.myBSD.org.my


put it to cvsup server, in this case, i use myBSD csup server, our local BSD cvsup server





3- start cvsup/csup to update your ports tree...

trunasuci# csup -g -L 2 ports-supfile

Parsing supfile "ports-supfile"

Connecting to cvsup.Free.myBSD.org.my

if u never do/update this ports before since installation date, it'll take abit long.. when it finished, then u now can use your ports to install the latest and updated pkg for your FreeBSD box/server!!!
