21.2 Configuration

cvsup is guided by a configuration file that describes what files to update, and the source from which to update them.

Here is a basic DragonFly cvsup configuration file:

*default host=cvsup.dragonflybsd.org
*default base=/usr
*default prefix=/usr
*default release=cvs
*default release=cvs tag=.
*default delete use-rel-suffix
*default compress


Alternately, the file /usr/share/examples/cvsup/DragonFly-src-supfile can be used as-is to update system source.

Run cvsup using /usr/share/examples/cvsup/DragonFly-src-supfile as an argument or with a separate file containing the above example text. Your system source files will be updated.
