hydra said:Yeah mickey, but your problem is not really FreeBSD related, it's Xorg related I believe... I felt somehow the same, give it a break and get and older ports snapshot, you'll make yourself and everybody around you really happy
I think that it's really better to have the latest from ports (unless broken) and try to fix your problems because sooner or later you'll get into troubles e.g.: you find a bug but no one is supporting you because you have an old version or you need ports X but it requires ports Y.1, ...
Why don't you read the documentation instead of whining ?mickeyharvey70 said:Thanks for the help but I have now wasted 30 hours with nothing to show for it.
No one is forcing you to use FreeBSD. So good luck.mickeyharvey70 said:Now there is nothing left to do except throw these cs's away and install windows or linux.
This is just your personal opinion.mickeyharvey70 said:freebsd is officially pointless

mickeyharvey70 said:whats the port supfile's path and what date would i use for xorg that comes with 6.2?
The Ports Collection supports the latest release on the FreeBSD-CURRENT and FreeBSD-STABLE branches. Older releases are not supported and may or may not work correctly with an up-to-date ports collection.
Oko said:So let me answer your first question. You waisted 25h of your
1. You were lazy and didn't read port notice.
2. You do not know how to read.
3. You do know how to read and you read the notice but you are stupid so you didn't process information correctly.
Pick your answer
