I've been reading the handbook a lot but still have a couple of questions
1: I updated ports tree in SystemManager, do I need to update System Source? I'm a little confused what that tree is for.
2: To keep PCBSD up to date command line wise I've installed "portmaster" pbi, because "pkg_add -r portmaster" didn't do anything. Some error couldn't connect ftp....? But anyway from LXterminal I type "portmaster -a" it will update flash, libdvdcss, and a bunch others I'd like to update.
Is this the proper way to update? I want to press "y" but wanted to get the a ok from you experts before I do.
(Is this the equivalent to aptitude update && safe-upgrade to a debian sys which is how I updated that whole/packages OS?)
3: The Firefox pbi is slightly out of date. Should I uninstall it and install as pkg _add -r firefox or a port and then have it update with portmaster, or do I have to update pkgs manually?
4: Does portmaster interfere with the built-in update-manager and PBIs?
5: How come Update-Manager doesn't see these updates?
Thanks in advance.
