I update the ports tree with cvsup ports-file...
but when i did
portmanager -u -l -y -p
i starts, but then it has to remove some ports and one of that ports is
portmanager itself so it cores.....:(
so weird...Its really difficult to update the ports....i dont even wanna
know to pass to rel 7....
Dunno how to do it really...
Will have to remove all ports installed and then update ports and reinstall
them? what would happen to my confs...?
