Description

When you have installed 1.4RC and PORTS from CD2, you find you have no bpm or kports available -you have to make them. You then find that bpm will blowup and kports will give you wrong info because you need to do make index first . Could this be done automatically ?. How do you know which PORTS and from what date you have got from the CD .

That is correct, we don't include any port management tools by default, since we try to focus our efforts on the PBI system. A lot of our users won't touch the ports system, but we provide the ports.tbz file to save time for advanced users who don't want to download them again.

We may want to consider making a "Kports" PBI though, which runs the make index and such automatically for users.
