Install an individual set on NetBSD

Save your settings, and run commands like this to install a single set to your system:

- save your settings first
# tar -cvJpf etc.tar.xz /etc
# tar -Jxvpf base.tar.xz -C /
- do the same with other sets except for etc and xetc

# etcupdate -av -s etc.tar.xz -s xetc.tar.xz
# postinstall fix

Then reboot to be on the safe side.

Rebuild installed packages for a certain host in pkgsrc

You have a machine (a master host) with several idividually installed packages. You want those packages to be rebuilt somewhere else (slave host). Do this:

1. On the master host
# pkg_info -Q PKGPATH -a > pkgs_i_want_to_have
2. Copy the generated file to the slave host, and issue as root:
# cat pkgs_i_want_to_have | (while read pp ; do cd /usr/pkgsrc/$pp ; make && make bin-install ; done)

Simple enough, eh?
