Hi everyone,

I just wanted to pass on how I've had so 
much success using portupgrade to 
install new software under FreeBSD 6.0

I build my previous installations into 
packages and backup them up to the 
location specified by 
(which I never remember but have it set 
in root's shell env. anyway)

I just installed the native Flash plugin 
for Mozilla which works great.

#portupgrade -bNr flashplugin-mozilla

I love portupgrade's "globbing".  Can't 
use it blindly but almost.

I'd love to hear what other users are 
having good success with for this or 
other tasks.

Best Regards,
