I recently did this exact operation. It went fine for me on my second
try. The first one I determined didn't go well as I didn't have the
system up to date first. So on my second attempt I made sure my 4.11
system was up to date, and did a complete buildworld, buildkernel, etc.
Once I was sure it was completely up to date on 4.11, I:
Saved my kernel config file to:
rm -rf /usr/src
rm -rf /usr/ports
I changed my cvsup tag and pulled new source. Then I meticulously
followed the instructions in /etc/src/UPDATING. Read those
instructions, be sure to update your /etc/make.conf file for the right CPU.
I did need to create a new kernel configuration file starting with
GENERIC and boot.hints from my old 4.11 kernel configuration file.
All went well except one library didn't get put in place when I did the
installworld. It was built but just not in place, so I saw an error
when I booted the system, and moved it manually.
The library that didn't get moved was:
I did add:
to my make.conf file and
options COMPAT_FREEBSD4 # Compatible with FreeBSD4
to my kernel config file, but still had to make sasl2 and sendmail for
sasl2. Otherwise the ports I had seemed to mostly work. But you might
want to do a:
[EMAIL PROTECTED] /usr/src]# echo $?
[EMAIL PROTECTED] /usr/src]# make -j6 buildworld
The CPUTYPE is not defined in /etc/make.conf, trying to make a clean
and this is RELENG_5_2_1
so make buildworld on this box completes.
I am going to try RELENG_5_3 and then if so then good ;)
