 Ports, packages and upgrade..
Author: Fallen 
Date:   19-01-03 12:25

Hello,

1 - The pkg_version command says that my packages need upgrading. But how can I do that?
2 - What are the advantages of upgrading the system to a new version? Isn't just upgrading the ports tree and the software enough? How long does it takes to upgrade a slow system?
3 - I get a "Cannot open makefile. Error code 2" message when I try to install xmms-midi. What can I do?

Thanks!
