You didn't need to install cvsup from ports. csup in the base system
will work just fine; it's the official replacement for cvsup. itetcu@
was pointing you to the documentation describing the procedure for using
Based on the thread so far, my understanding is that you need to
download the FreeBSD source repository (kernel, base system, etc.),
because the port you're trying to build (which is a kernel module)
There are two cvsup files associated with the source repo:
Which you should use depends on if you're running -RELEASE or -STABLE.
The most important part in those files is the "*default release=cvs
tag=XXX". Specifically the "tag=XXX" part.
8.0-RELEASE's tag is RELENG_8_0, while 8.0-STABLE's tag is RELENG_8.
So which tag you use should be based on what version you wish to run.
So at this point, you should:
1) pkg_delete ezm3-1.1_2
2) pkg_delete cvsup-without-gui-16.1h_4
3) csup -h <some cvsup server> -L 2 /usr/share/example/cvsup/stable-supfile
csup -h <some cvsup server> -L 2 /usr/share/example/cvsup/standard-supfile
This will populate /usr/src on your system. From there, you should be
able to build ports/sysutils/fusefs-kmod as normal without any problem.
Does this help explain things better?
