 problem with updating ports
Author: Roman Serbski 
Date:   18-12-00 05:48

Good day everybody!

I read article on freebsddiary.org. (http://www.freebsddiary.org/portsupdate.html). so, I wanted to update my ports tree. Everything was fine, but after updating, when I go to /usr/ports/databases/mysql322-server (for example) I do not see nothing (there is no Makefile, descr, pkg, md5 folders), just README.html file. Did I miss something?

Thank you.
Roman

PS: I use FreeBSD 4.2-STABLE.
PSS: ports-cvsup file:

*default host=cvsup2.de.FreeBSD.org
*default base=/usr
*default prefix=/usr
*default release=cvs tag=RELENG_4
*default delete use-rel-suffix

change your release tag. It's wrong. To find out how to update your ports, read the <a href="http://www.freebsd.org/handbook">FreeBSD handbook</a>.

To see what I did, click on topics (available from most if not all pages of this website), then look at the ports section and look for <i>Updating the ports collection</i>. In there, you'll see that you should be using the template provided.

In short, ports have no version. There is only the HEAD tag. For that, you want to use

tag=.

not

tag=RELENG_4

But use the template at /usr/share/examples/cvsup/ports-supfile

Hi Dan Langille

Thank you very much! It works!
I was confused about tag value, because I've just finished updating 4.0 Release to 4.2 Stable, using your manual. So I thought I should change tag for ports updating to RELENG_4 too.
It was my mistake.

Thank you again and best regards!
Roman
