looks like the patch is for danguardian 188.8.131.52 :-( Going to try it out tho and see if it works.
I dont know if my steps are correct, but after running the commands you provided. I downloaded dansguardian src to /usr/ports/distfiles then ran cmd make. After that command finished, I change to the src dir and ran the patch command. make configure, and now i'm in the process of running make install. I'm thinking i should had untar the src in the /usr/ports/distfiles then ran the make command. Does it matter?
Once make install is down. How to do I turn it into a package?
btw, i've attached the missing blockedflash.swf file... not needed but the error in the log goes away. should be placed here /usr/local/share/dansguardian
thanks again for all your help
