had the "pkg_add -r kde4" worked, i still shouldn't need the port tree right? still not sure why it didn't.
# pkg_add -r kde

does the -r me retrieve.. and thats why its grabbing everything from the ftp server?
actually the port tree installed fine.. without needing the upgrade because i didn't have the tree installed. dunno but it worked
Handbook A.6.4 wrote:# portsnap extract
Note: In the default installation /usr/ports is not created. If you run FreeBSD 6.0-RELEASE, it should be created before portsnap is used. On more recent versions of FreeBSD or Portsnap, this operation will be done automatically at first use of the portsnap command.
