This is my first time running 'cvsup' to upgrade
port-tree after installing the OS which runs on a slow
PC, AMD-K6-350 and under X11.
# cvsup cvs-supfile
I went through 'A.5.3 CVSup Configuration' on
But I haven't had much confidence on myself, not
running the PC to an unstable state after upgrade.
Please provide me some advice on this respect
$ pkg_info | grep cvsup
cvsup-16.1h General network file distribution
system optimized for CVS
# cp /usr/share/examples/cvsup/cvs-supfile
# ee /etc/cvs-supfile (as follows)
cvs-all (shall I add 'release=cvs' ???)
Can I create one 'supfile' to /etc/supfile and run
followings collectively (instead of to run each
# cat /etc/supfile
doc-all ('release=cvs' ???)
cvs-all ('release=cvs' ???)
cvsroot-all ('release=cvs' ???)
ports-all ('release=cvs' ???)
# cvsup supfile
Is it necessary to run following trial test ???
# mkdir /var/tmp/dest
# cvsup supfile /var/tmp/dest
I could not locate
where it is kept???
