    Default mozilla port issues

    I've been working on upgrading 85 ports with portmanager -u for the last couple days. Had
    to restart it a few times, but little by little it seems to be whittling down the number
    of outstanding packages.

    Couple questions though...

    1) a lot of the gnome stuff doesn't seem to be getting done... did I read something
    recently about portmanager not being able to upgrade gnome currently? Or some difficulty
    with gnome?

    2) several of my remaining ports say that they're waiting on mozilla-1.7.5_1,2 as a
    dependency, but if I try to upgrade that, it stops, saying there are security issues with
    mozilla and I need to update my ports tree. I've updated several times however... What
    else do I need to do?

    3) portmanager periodically says that it's missing nautilus-media-0.8.1_1... any idea why
    that would be?

    thnks,

    Ben

    PS: crap, I just remembered the UPDATING file... I see in there that I can't use
    portupgrade to update gnome... does that mean it won't work with portmanager either?

    nautilus-media-0.8.1_1 is no longer in ports, see the bottom
    of /usr/ports/MOVED. Eventually when the ports that used to depend on
    it are upgraded you will stop seeing that message, 

    Until the upgrade is done you should set
    DISABLE_VULNERABILITIES="YES" in your make file. portmanager will be
    able to do the upgrade, but when it can't upgrade one port like mozilla
    it won't upgrade anything that depends on mozilla either.

    just pkg delete everything that boders portmanager -u it worked fine for me
    the dependency error slows down the hole process ALOT if you have many
    things to upgrade

    You may have to run portmanager more than once to get everything
    done but for the most part it seems to be handling the gnome upgrade OK.
