Update /Upgrade pcbsd


Hi

I have pcbsd 9.1 running. How do you update/ upgrade the system? Not upgrade to the next distro version but installed software.

With Ubuntu you can run apt-get upgade which will install any relative security needed packages/patches etc.
I have run pbi_update and that only updates the a few packages Firefox and Thunderbird . If this is correct and updates are not as frequent as with linux then ok.

i think BSD has less upgrades as linux because they are heavily tested for security reasons as BSD is very secure sistem.
