OK.

OK.

Heh, in my case I still don't have anything in jails not any PBIs - when I
installed they were mostly not ready, so the question is how can one update
only PCBSD-specific stuff like e.g. automounting stuff, control panel,
AppCafe etc. considering that most of the installed packages are from
ports?

I hope that after moving to 9.0-STABLE, I'll start deploying PBIs on my OS as
well as put some packages in jails.



Sincerely,
Gour
