Hello,
1. How I disable the update manager? I'm not sure what to delete :/usr/local/share/pcbsd/xstartup/ checkupdater.sh?? or other script.

2. In 9.1 You'll offer support for RELEASE or STABLE, from what I know once the RELEASE is completed, there are only security fixes for the base system, but there are no bug fixes for the RELEASE. Its even worse with packages for RELEASE since once they are built they are never later updated, even if they have security issues, not even mentioning bugs. So that is definitely not the right way.

Default portaudit/Update Manager loop
You can remove that script and that will disable the update manager.

In 9.1 the system will be on RELEASE, which will only get security
updates. However the packages will be updated weekly (or thereabouts),
so you will be getting security + bug fixes + updates to
KDE/LXDE/GNOME/XFCE and others.

All you need to do is right-click on it and choose not to have it load at start. No need to delete anything.

When you want to run it again choose it from the menu and have it start again at boot.

This step works on KDE, GNOME, XFCE, probably in LXDE but not in Openbox, I just tested that option thanks anyway. Works only with removing checkupdater.sh script.

Me too. I tried it on 2 different machines in KDE, LXDE, Fluxbox and Openbox and once I had disabled it from starting at boot in KDE it didn't start again no matter what I used.

For next RELEASE 9.1-x, 10 is posible to have an Package Manager that combine AppCaffe, bkpkg and kports to permit an easy maintenance of system, instead of using the clasical FreeBSD method (portupgrade/portmaster; portaudit,etc.) which are great tools but for newbie are the worst nightmare (before I learn how to use them I crash my system for several times) :crash:

PS:I'm sorry for spelling mistakes or disagreements made, I am not a native speaker of English.
