    It may sound silly for some,:\ but i really don't know why the dvd doesn't have the whole packages.
    i have a poor internet connection after i downloaded the full dvd i didn't find some packages and i have to use the ftp server again which is real pain if you have non-stable internet connection.
    is there any dvd that contains the whole packages so i can download it once and use it for installing packages ??
    thanks...

    Some ports cannot be packaged because of licensing issues.

    whitediode, I know this forum has all kinds of colours and fonts, but please post in regular font/size/colour, to prevent this forum from looking like MySpace ..

    According to Ken Smith
    In short, FreeBSD team is working and there is no ETA.
