So, you know a new version of a software has been released, but the port maintainer isn’t fast enough to satisfy your bleeding edge need; here’s how you’d do it:
Makefile, variables like
PORTVERSIONand any other variables used to identify the package to download.
- Make sure that it is possible to download the new package and generate
- Generate the
pkg-plistfile so that all the new files is correctly pointed out:
make makeplist > pkg-plist awk '/etc\/rc.d\/plexmediaserver/,/^$/' pkg-plist > tmp && mv tmp pkg-plist
- Then it’s just a matter of re-installing the ports:
make distclean && make && make reinstall clean
