I hope this is an appropriate list for this type of question; please let me
know if another list is more suitable to newbie-type quesions.
I've been using Linux for a long time, and every year or so I have a crack
at *BSD to see what I'm missing. But it never works out.
So, trying again...
I think I want to start with FreeBSD 6.2 with Xorg upgraded to 7.3. I tried
to accomplish this over the course of several installs. In the end, I
decided this should work:
a) install 6.2, plain User setup (NOT with Xorg, and NOT with ports)
b) portsnap fetch
c) portsnap extract
d) cd to /usr/ports/x11/xorg and make install clean
When I do pkg_version -v, it SEEMS to have installed the xorg that I want.
Is this the right procedure to start with? Should I have set up that
Any advice appreciated.
