stable branch - ports security updates
Could someone help me to clarify how to apply packages security updates and what is the proper way to do it?
I know I have to go through ports, as there are no packages for stable, the branch I want to follow.
So I got the port tree via Anonymous CVS as explained in the FAQ.
From there the script
Here are examples of the output :
... databases/evolution-data-server # -> eggdbus-0.6p1 ... www/firefox-i18n,-fr # mozilla-firefox-3.6.13p3 -> mozilla-firefox-3.6.16 www/mozilla-firefox # 3.6.13p3 -> 3.6.16
# cd /usr/ports/databases/evolution-data-server # make FORCE_UPDATE=Yes update
Here is what I did to update Firefox :
# make FORCE_UPDATE=Yes update ... Upgrading from mozilla-firefox-3.6.13p3 mozilla-firefox-3.6.13p3->mozilla-firefox-3.6.16 forward dependencies: | Dependency of firefox-i18n-fr-3.6.13 on mozilla-firefox-3.6.13 doesn't match NOT MERGING: can't find update for firefox-i18n-fr-3.6.13-> (ok) Forcing update mozilla-firefox-3.6.13p3->mozilla-firefox-3.6.16: ok Read shared items: ok Look in /usr/local/share/doc/pkg-readmes for extra documentation. Couldn't find updates for firefox-i18n-fr-3.6.13
My questions are :
- What should I do for evolution-data-server to be correctly linked to eggdbus-0.6p1 ?
- How come new packages came along while I update ? (CUPS for example in the case of Firefox)
- Is there a way to send the output of the out-of-date script to the update process ?
I tried this
# pkg_list=$(mktemp) # /usr/ports/infrastructure/build/out-of-date > $pkg_list # cd /usr/ports # SUBDIRLIST=$pkg_list make clean package
- Last question, I wanted to subscribe to the ports-security list, but there is no activity since 2006. Is there a way to be aware of the availability of updates without updating the port tree and running out-of-date ?
