* Add a warning regarding mixing ports(7) and pkg(8) to install softwareMateusz Piotrowski2020-11-181-1/+33
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | I think it's something that has been missing from the handbook for a long time. Unfortunately, this patch does not explain all the subtleties of the ports framework (like, e.g., that ports create packages during the build process which are then installed via pkg). We should probably hint the reader about it somewhere, but that's something for another patch. What's important here is to warn new users about problems they might encounter. Also, add some examples of working with quarterly with Subversion. PR: 251195 Submitted by: Fred <fjs.usa01 gmail.com> Notes: svn path=/head/; revision=54691

| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | This removes the assertion that only portupgrade or portmaster are suitable for upgrading ports, and provides a framework for discussing more alternatives as they become available. Synth is mentioned as an alternative. A subsequent patch will be put up for community discussion. While here, clean up some duplicate and awkward wording.

* Shuffle some text in the ports section of the Handbook.Mark Linimon2017-01-101-22/+33
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | The presentation assumes more knowledge on the part of a new user to FreeBSD than it should. In good writing, concepts should always be introduced before being discussed. The current presentation mixes them. The new order introduces applications, then ports, then packages, and then elaborates on the difference between packages and ports. 90% of the content is merely moved. Some editing for clarity is included.

| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | The presentation assumes more knowledge on the part of a new user to FreeBSD than it should. Some of the text, while correct, is still too easy to misunderstand. The overall sense of the text does not change. Add note about ports not running their startup scripts upon installation as being by design.
