Ok, so installed portmaster and I'm trying with it, I'm hoping it won't take time.
So I've been up all night and my vim installation is still going on.
I have an amazon ec2 freebsd server setup. I was hoping to setup jails, which took 4-5 hours to
make world then crashed.
I got that fixed and realized I didn't have vim. I google and found this article.
So like a moron I did a make install for vim instead of vim-lite like the article says. It has been 5 hours or so and it's still going on and I have no clue what to do. It also keeps coming up with different prompts which I have to answer to continue.
- If I kill this installation, can I just start from scratch and install vim-lite? Will my system will be ok? Will it take this long again?
- Should I wait? I can't stay up any longer though to keep pressing enter!
Background: On EC2 freebsd doesn't come with ports installed at all. So I installed it, took some time. Other than that, since I did
make install clean inside
/usr/ports/editors/vim/ it has just been spitting at my screen non-stop.
