Bsd updating 7 3 to 8 4
There are many applications one might want to use on an Open BSD system.
To make this software easier to install and manage, it is ported to Open BSD and packaged.
The aim of the package system is to keep track of which software gets installed, so that it may be easily updated or removed.
In minutes, a large number of packages can be fetched and installed, with everything put in the right place.
Application X is said to be dependent on these other applications, which is why Y and Z are called dependencies of X. This will, among other things, prevent the dependencies of a package from being deleted before the package itself has been deleted.You may also specify the absolute location of a package, be it a local file or remote URL.Supported URL prefixes are http, https, ftp and scp.Some applications simply don't work on all architectures.Some applications cannot be distributed via mirrors for licensing reasons.
