I understand how to get the ports collection installed and updated with
the -P switch, but what I'm interested in is a way to keep the installed
packages current on each of the jails without having to go into each
jail individually and type:
# portupgrade -a
every time a port needs updating.
Is this possible when all of the jails run the same set of packages?
Maybe i completly miss the point, but maybe installing all the needed
packages/ports on the main system and null mounting /usr/local/bin ,
/usr/local/lib et al into the jails while keeping /usr/local/etc unique
in each jail could do the trick.
Thanks -- this is actually most along the lines of what I was
I suppose the questions I should be asking are:
1. Between basejail and flavours, does a facility for this technique
already exist so that I am not duplicating efforts. (I think this is
already answered by virtue of the fact that we are discussing this in
the first place :)
2. Is there a bad reason for doing this? (i.e., security, etc.), where I
should be better off just sticking to installing packages into each jail
and letting them manage their own space.
Thanks all for the input,
