    Convert from ports to packages

    pkg upgrade will reinstall unlocked ports as packages, and then presumably those packages can be managed (updated) through pkg. However, after upgrading all but a couple of ports to packages, portmaster dies during portmaster -aR. I also get the impression that dependency ports aren't converted...

    What is better to use? pkg or portmaster

    Are pkg and portmaster equivalent? Is it better to use pkg or portmaster? To me they should be equivalent, and both should maintain the same version of software installed on the system, however I noticed inconsistencies. I have been playing around with a test system (FreeBSD 11) and I've...
