Hello, First time post here
I am running Freebsd 6_3 which comes with Bind 9.3.4
i have intalled Bind 9.4.2 via ports using the replace base option
but every time i do a freebsd_update Bind reverts back to 9.3.4
is there something i have missed?
i don't think there's anything you have missed. I suppose that freebsd-update utility doesn't know anything about the port you have installed and instructed to replace the base system's bind. You should probably consider installing bind from portwith w/o overwrite base option enabled.
if you overwriting base install of bind, and then update the base system the port will get overwritten whether this is via freebsd-update or cvsup/manual compile.
The way round it is to exclude bind in the make.conf from building when doing world and that stops it been overwritten again, not sure how on freebsd-update. But I guess you can just reinstall the port.
