<table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" border="0" ><tr><td valign="top" style="font: inherit;">I posted the following at wiki.pcbsd.org as a discussion for <a href="http://wiki.pcbsd.org/index.php/Working_with_FreeBSD_Ports">this issue</a>.<br><br><div style="margin-left: 40px;">This needs to be clarified a bit more.<br><br>I opened a Konsole using runports as root and then did portsnap fetch, but that did not create a ports tree in /usr/ports. Seems you must create that tree the usual way first and then switch to runports to build a port. <br><br>What about adding packages by pkg_add?<br><br>Please explain in more detail what's going on here with runports. <br><br>Why is there also a runports command for user - don't you always want to build ports as root?<br><br>When I ran portsnap from runports, what happened? It didn't complain. <br><br></div>Couldn't find a ports tree anywhere. There is no /PCBSD/ports, or /local/ports.
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. But.... where?<br><br>Now what do I do? There is nothing in /usr/ports.<br><br>Also, how will this play with programs like kports (the latest version released a week ago or so cannot yet build ports, just examine what you have and such)?<br><br>Last question. 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></table><br>
