some time ago.. i was trying to do the same thing:
that seemed fine.. i was noticing and remembering this little bit:
cripes.. here is a current excerpt
kayve# cvsup -L 2 -h cvsup.FreeBSD.org
cvsup: Command not found.
now i'm "kayve" and not "kayvetop" arg. there was no such directory as /usr/ports but i didn't look in /mnt-for-6.x CRIKEY
maybe i booted in the wrong place.
thanks to my flaw of kindness i no longer have a mouse at home thus i can no longer boot on freeBSD here at home because
i can't remember how to get the membrane mouse to werk freeBSD.
now i am remembering i need to chose which freeBSD to boot to? sheesh. wait now. how did that werk again ? OMG OMG OMG
i picked out cafe latte from this link
for i386 i didn't want to deal with all the newfangled rpm nonsense arg arg arg. the instalation structions there like
make clean WHAT?? WHAT?? make clean and yer done??? WHAT???
then then send u to sun.java and its like solaris or linux WHAT??
anyhoo.. i extracted the dingies in /usr/local lets see..
i thoughtthis was promising
kayve# uname -v
FreeBSD 5.4-RC3 #0: Sun Apr 17 09:23:46 UTC 2005
the expanded tarballs made files.. but there are no makefiles
-rw-r--r-- 1 root wheel 15964 Sep 6 11:15 dmesg.log
kayve# cd diablo-jdk1.5.0_07/
./configure: Command not found.
kayve# javac df
