Many thanks; I'm a bit nervous, as this is my only FreeBSD server :-)
I know I'm going to have trouble with the ports area anyway, because I
seem to have corrupted it somehow (during the switch between pkg* etc),
and I cannot seem to reload it from the CD (disc1). Is there a way to
fetch the entire ports tree online?
Oh, this is for Joseph Mingrove: my mail log shows a message from you
(relayed via FreeBSD.org) but there's nothing in my mailbox about it (and
it certainly wasn't rejected). I guess I accidentally deleted it, so
could you please send it again?
