RE: Ports question



Title: RE: Ports question

The build creates a package (*.tgz) which can be installed on another similiarly configured machine w/o recompilation. These packages should be /usr/ports/packages/i386 or something. I don't have a OpenBSD box at work so I can't recall the exact path. Fish around for it. If you're using NFS you can export that directory to other machines for quick access.

Subject: Ports question


Now that I've learned how to use ports, I'd like to be able to move programs
I've "ported" to other machines.  Can I just tar my ports tree, burn it on
CD, untar it on the target machine, and make and/or make install?
