I have been trying a lot of things, I want to start again, I think I just
need to delete /usr/ports?
Let me read again the manual and see those Flags.
I remember that the first time u run portsdb the manuals recommend to sue
Uu, but let read the manual page, I will back soon!!!
Thanks all for your support!!!
