Of course he doesn't, but even having to do the x.org upgrade (which he
is probably unaware of) can be considered painful as indicated in
another thread, and having to do it to be able to use a newer browser,
at least when it has security fixes, could certainly be considered
"stupid". I know, I know, FreeBSD doesn't have the manpower to maintain
branches of the ports tree, but sometimes it would really be nice...
Yes - the xorg upgrade was scary. I read the UPDATING about 5 times until I
exactly understood everything. I even printed out the pertinent section so
I'd have a cheat sheet. I had also been following all the writeups in the
mail lists so I knew about some of the 'gotchas'. When I finally went to do
it there was no difficulty, just two days of recompiling stuff like KDE.
But for me it went well, but that's because I relied on other people who
are smarter than me and their work.
But I was thinking of the xorg upgrade with reference to the comment(s) and
still decided it was on the ports side of the house and not OS update
