After update have been finished, lets see how we can find and install additional software using ports.
20160311: AFFECTS: print/cups-base, print/cups-client, print/cups-image AUTHOR: [email protected] The cups-base, cups-client and cups-image packages have been combined into one cups package.
If you build your own ports the easiest way to update is to delete these packages first and then build and install print/cups.
Free BSD operating system can use binary packages with pkg utility, but for for some ocassion, like running newest versions of the code, you would want to compile some programs.
For that, there is very useful ports collection that simplifies compilation process.
If you are using ssh to access your Free BSD machine, you would want to get root for your regular user before proceeding, because you access the VM as user and then you need to use su.
By default, Free BSD will give you sorry message, and to avoid that, use following command: And the ports will do the magic.
If the latest version of a given package is already installed, an empty string will be returned for that package.
CLI Example: Restore database to the specified jail.
In minutes, a large number of packages can be fetched and installed, with everything put in the right place.
The ports collection does not go through the same thorough security audit that is performed on the Open BSD base system.
Note that this will run the command within the jail, and so the path to the file from which the pkg database will be restored is relative to the root of the jail.
