can anyone briefly explain what is the general procedure here?
i am trying to update a few packages which inevitably provoke a firefox2
install, which i don't want (have ff3).
checked google and porter's handbook, then tried marking ff2 as IGNORE --
which i didn't really understand how but added IGNORE= reason etc etc to the
makefile at the very top after the comments. seems like it worked, but what i
want to update fails because of that.
i am installing portupgrade now to try with k or K (whichever means comtinue
anyway) but is this a good idea or an easier way?
also, i am not sure if questions like this go here or still go in ports
mailing list ?
thanks in advance
