I'm running FreeBSD. I installed a lot of packages and ports, before realizing that managing them i.e updating them all in one go might be difficult.
Am i right in thinking that, for a workstation with Xorg and Gnome2 installed, a safe and easy first step getting all the non-base software up-to-date is:
#portupgrade -RarPb -x Xorg -x Gnome2
Can exclusions break the system, in some cases
(if you forget the -b
option)??. Or, if you use the -x
option might you be left with a system that is in a non-ideal state due to dependency issues?
Thank you very much for your replies
