Adventures in maintaining FreeBSD

portupgrade is finally done... That was definitely no less than two solid days of building/compiling! It is nice to finally run my favourite apps (Novell Evolution, Gaim, and Firefox) again, and KDE 3.4.0 has some noticeable improvements over the 3.2 series (yes, it has been about a year since I did a proper upgrade on Spiral). Most notably, is the inclusion of the KOffice office applications. I tried opening an OpenOffice Writer (.sxc) document in KWord, which seems to have worked quite well. The only thing that may not have worked/rendered, was a page border, but I did not spend much time verifying the possible issue (I have an essay on the Buddhist Dharmapada/Dhammapada to finish!).
