	No - lack of a portupgrade subsitute puts me off pkgsrc which

	So far no significant problems apart from xorg crashing horribly
with DRM, but AIUI that's a common ASUS/ATI interaction problem.
OTOH I get a decent connection next week so I'll probably be doing a lot

to punt it out for others to play with :)

	Always from source - I sometimes tweak the knobs.

	About twice a month.
