Beware that the uninstall of some ports will shutdown daemons but the installer will not restart them. A simple solution is to reboot the server once done.Any problems will be reported at the end of the process.Please rebuild all installed 3rd party software (e.g., programs installed from the ports tree) and then run "/usr/sbin/freebsd-update install" again to finish installing updates.Here is a very handy method for updating all of the software on your Free BSD box.Open BSD packages are bundles of pre-compiled third party software.There are made available on Open BSD FTP and HTTP mirrors, organized by Open BSD version and machine architecture.directory (which is something you can put in a flavour if you're going to be doing this often).
It does not depend upon other ports, external databases or languages, rather it’s been written in such a way as to make use of the information about a port’s dependencies, dependents, file locations and other information contained in to determine which ports to update.
This set of files is used for building and installing applications on Free BSD, and other BSD-based operating systems.
This post will describe how to use portmaster, a utility for updating installed ports.
The versions of software discussed in this post are as follows: Okay, let’s get started.
All commands are issued as the root user or by simulating the root user by using the command Now that the Ports Collection has been updated and portmaster installed, let’s check the installed ports against the updated Ports Collection to see whether any installed ports need to be updated.
