    Huge command on portmaster

    I was doing portmaster -a . When it finished, the output it's saved in "/tmp/portmasterfail.txt" I won't post the whole command because it's so huge that it has more than 8000 characters.

    pkg upgrade will reinstall unlocked ports as packages, and then presumably those packages can be managed (updated) through pkg.

    How to simplify "Please rebuild all installed 3rd party software"

    I greatly dread the inevitiable "Please rebuild all installed 3rd party software" message from freebsd-update and I'm convinced there are ways to reduce the pain. I seek advice. - 1st: It seems to me that the primary intent for the universal rebuild is to remove all previous version library...
