Do I know someone who can pick up a server from 7401 E. Ben White Blvd. Austin TX?

The emphasis is on know, or recommended by someone I know. This is the original FreshPorts server, way past useful: RAID, 8GB RAM, etc. The drives need to be wiped and everything recycled.

Notes from UPDATING
These upgrade notes are taken from /usr/ports/UPDATING
  • 2021-01-30
    Affects: users of graphics/opencv-core
      graphics/opencv-core has been reintegrated into graphics/opencv.
      So there is no longer a circular dependency
         opencv-core -> ffmpeg -> opencv
      If you experience problems updating the packages, try
          pkg delete -f opencv-core
Expand this list (1 items)
  • 2013-12-03
    Affects: users of graphics/opencv, graphics/opencv-core
      OpenCV has been updated to 2.4.7.  Due to movement of files between the
      opencv port and the opencv-core port, it will be necessary to remove
      both packages before updating.

Port Moves
  • port moved to graphics/opencv on 2021-01-30
    REASON: Reintegrated into a simple, maintainable port
  • port moved here from graphics/opencv2-core on 2017-04-14
    REASON: Revert previous rename

graphics/opencv: update to 4.5.1 -- and make port more easily maintainable

This is a major upgrade from 3.x to 4.x.

Changelog from versions 3.4.1--4.5.1 can be found here:

Note: this has explicitely not been added as a new graphics/opencv4 port, but
replaces the
      previous graphics/opencv[3] port. Again, to improve maintainability by not
giving ports
      the option to pick the "wrong one" - this leads however to some abandoned
ports being

The port has been greatly simplified:
    * graphics/opencv-core which existed to enable ffmpeg to depend on opencv,
and vice versa
      has been removed. ffmpeg no longer can depend on opencv.

graphics/opencv: back out r423216 and r423063 (replaying r423316)

Renaming didn't help to unblock 3.x progress as co-existence with 2.x
was no less complex than simply fixing consumers. This commit also
restores directory-level history accidentally lost via git-svn.
