Hello to all,
It's a little bit strange to ask this because I know (I've learned) how
to build my own packages with pkgsrc and how to update pkgsrc and
packages created but I came to a doubt:
My case: I use a fast PC to build all packages I need from scratch using
pkgsrc. I use old slow PCs as client to install only packages from NFS.
My question is: How to update all packages that need to be updating with
pkg_add? I've read pkg_add and I've found "pkg_add -u" and "pkg_add -uu"
(to update dependencies as well) but I don't know how to get a list of
packages that need to be update, like "lintpkgsrc -i" against pkgsrc.
Maybe use "*" wildcard in `pkg_add -uu "*"` ?
It is possible to make check this against a NFS repository?
Sorry for my *long" question. I don't know how to say this in shorter
