Setup ports and src on FreeBSD through Salt
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Previously, FreeBSD installation took care of /usr/ports and /usr/src.

But generally, after installation and before to transition to Salt, the following things are done:

  • Delete /usr/ports and fetch it again through portsnap fetch
  • Use csup for /usr/src

We can so add both in core for any FreeBSD server.
