Well, just to make sure, use the ports-supfile from
/usr/share/examples/cvsup/ports-supfile and change *only* the server to
Just checked my tree, and I have php 5.2.6. Some cvsup servers seem to
be more up to date than others.
Then again, if it is just the ports tree you are after, I would suggest
The first time just do:
portsnap fetch extract
And for all subsequent times:
portsnap fetch update
That's it! No settings, no supfiles, no worries on selecting servers.
And it is faster too. The first time it will download a ~50MB file, but
then updates will be a lot smaller.
