%red%Portsnap is a system for securely distributing the FreeBSD ports tree.

*From http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/portsnap.html

*%blue% Installation

On FreeBSD 6.0 and more recent versions, Portsnap is contained in the FreeBSD base system. On older versions of FreeBSD, it can be installed using the ports-mgmt/portsnap port.

*%blue% Portsnap Configuration

Portsnap's operation is controlled by the /etc/portsnap.conf configuration file. For most users, the default configuration file will suffice.


*%blue% Running Portsnap for the First Time

The first time portsnap(8) is run, it will need to download a compressed snapshot of the entire ports tree into /var/db/portsnap/ (or /usr/local/portsnap/ if Portsnap was installed from the Ports Collection). This is approximately a 41 MB download.

portsnap fetch

portsnap extract

Note: In the default installation /usr/ports is not created.

*%blue% Updating the Ports Tree

After an initial compressed snapshot of the ports tree has been downloaded and extracted into /usr/ports/

portsnap fetch update

*%blue%Some older versions of portsnap do not support this syntax; if it fails, try instead the following:

portsnap fetch

portsnap update
