Hi there guys.

I've got some doubts about upating packages.
I'd like and adivce about what's the best option or less risky to update

You can use pkg_comp (pkgtools/pkg_comp) to build binary packages in a chroot environment. Then use pkg_add -u or pkg_chk or pkgin to update from binary packages on your system[s].

Within pkg_comp you can use pkg_rolling-replace to bring everything up-to-date regularly.

That way if something goes wrong in the chroot environment while building, it doesn't directly affect your system.
