warning: I am going to start using this blog as a note taking place.

misc notes on playing with freebsd from a linux user’s perspective:

pkg_add is the apt/emerge
pkg_add -r pkgname (-r is remote fetch)
(do not know how to do a search)

After installing a new app, run `rehash’ … this fixes up new binaries in the path so they can run.

    You could also use portupgrade (/usr/ports/sysutils/portupgrade).
    To make a search :
    % make search key=”
    in /usr/ports.

    if you installed the ports you should install “portinstall”:
    portinstall portupgrade

    and with some nice scripts you can automate updates :)
