Re: DivX movies and 3.1?
encouraging people to make their src and ports out of sync is bad practice,
and should be noted that just because it happens to work this time, doesnt
mean you should expect to always be able to do this...
if the people were curious/cared enough, they would have figured that out
i just dont like telling people it is ok to try to build something from
current ports on their system that is release/stable. maybe i am just on
ps -> "it worked 2 weeks ago when i did it, why doesnt it now??, the email
said i could, so i thought it would be cool" ... just my opinion...
