cvs-supfile default prefix
Hi, apoligies if this is a daft wuestion, very much feeling my way around FreeBSD currently...
I'm working through creating a cvs-supfile, using an UK mirror:
# IMPORTANT: Change the next line to use one of the CVSup mirror sites
# listed at http://www.freebsd.org/doc/handbook/mirrors.html.
*default delete use-rel-suffix
My intention is to retain downloads in /usr/src and to pick updates only for 7.0 release.
I've been using the handbook and also looking at hack #80 from BSD Hacks.
Before I put this into use, could someone point me at any mistakes or improvements?
Your release line is wrong, and you need to specify what of the branch you want to download:
*default host=cvsup.uk.freebsd.org *default base=/var/db *default prefix=/usr *default release=cvs tag=RELENG_7_0 *default delete use-rel-suffix *default compress src-all
There are examples of sup files in /usr/share/examples/cvsup
