Then I used system-->Runports (root) to fetch but it crashed with a sig 11. Then ran portsnap fetch from a regular konsole and it reported the latest snapshot matched what we already have.

I'm going to build a jail to run Drupal/php5/mysql/apache2, probably using The Warden. I presume I need a separate ports tree for the jail, and if so, then I get the separation from the desktop automatically, right?<br><br>...Jeff<br><div style="margin-left: 40px;"><br></div><br></td></tr></tbody></table><br>
