Installing the FreeBSD Ports Collection

Search ports for:

The FreeBSD installer programs allow the Ports Collection to be installed at the same time as the operating system. See bsdinstall for FreeBSD9.X and later versions, or sysinstall for FreeBSD8.X and earlier versions.

If the Ports Collection is not initially installed, it can be added with portsnap or Subversion.

A gzipped tarball of the Ports Collection can also be downloaded. The current size of the file is about 48 megabytes.
