I was able to get the updates successfully.
Thanks to all who provided insight and advice. The school introduced
a new firewall blocking some websites that seem harmful :( I cannot
download some programs because they are considered bad, I have to
download the source and build that way if possible.
However, I might bring up another machine and try to test building
from source. Is there an idiot proof guide to synth, ie, a howto for
I was able to run
# portmaster -a
and update all ports at one point in time and I enjoyed doing it. Now
I am just lazy and use
# pkg update
# pkg upgrade
We update the dports tree, as directed in your mail, but the synth
page is complicated at first sight. This is why I am asking. I have
a problem with icedtea-web, java plugin not working. It works in
FreeBSD, but not here in dfly :( Maybe if I build it from source?
problem could go away? how do I troubleshoot these details.
