A freshly-built version in HTML is at:


Nice, nice. Found some things that might need a look at though (and have made some brave attempts too).

http://www.itstud.chalmers.se/~eriwik/pkgsrc.diff Fixes some formulation and changes Pentium IV to Pentium 4.

http://www.itstud.chalmers.se/~eriwik/pkgsrc-mailinglist.diff Is an attempt to fix the links to the pkgsrc mailing-lists (I have absolutely no idea how they are supposed to work but this seem to be correct) and removes old entries for FreeBSD ports mailing-lists.

Some other things that I don't know how to fix:

In section 4.5.2 there is a note saying: "It should be noted that ``Extracting [the] complete dependency database'' does indeed take a while." Is that only the first time it's run (or after each update of the pkgsrc-tree)? Users might not want to use it if it takes a lot of time every time.

In section references are made to the previous section which does not really make much sence. "As with the last section, this section makes an assumption that you have a working Internet connection." Does that refer to 4.4 or 4.5.2?

Lastly there is a lack of consistency when using the (R)-symbol after pkgsrc. Having looked quickly in the pkgsrc guide I've seen no usage of it at all, but in the DF handbook it is used sometimes, and sometimes not.
