 Re: Updating Firefox

Okay, I'm half way there (I think!).

I am using the release version of FreeBSD 5.4 so pkg_add would only install files relating to that release rather than the latest version from the stable release.

I set the PACKAGESITE environment variable to ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/i386/packages-5-stable/Latest and tried again. This time it did install the latest version. However, it complained that it needed the latest versions of pkgconfig, expat, gettext, etc. etc. etc.

Is there any way of updating all of these packages with one easy command or am I looking at a reinstall of FreeBSD? :(

Please help me - I think I'm going to cry! :'(

Nick.
