Not tested, but maybe this works. a) use etcmerge before freebsd-upgrade and exclude /etc in freebsd-update.conf b) manually extract the sources, then use mergemaster and then run freebsd-update c) if you have more then one system fix once freebsd-update and deploy the script to the rest of the systems I use myself a mix of mergemaster and upgrade via the (kernel|src|man|...).txz and base.txz (exclude ^./etc). Going this way since 6.x and also major upgrades 6.x->7.x->8.x ... main issue on older systems is the space required by the kernel symbols. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
