I've got a few 6.0-RELEASE machines I want to bring up to date. I want to use
etcmerge because mergemaster scares the bejesus out of me.
I can create a copy of the standard 6.0-REL /etc using mergemaster, and
copying /var/tmp/temproot/src to /var/db/src, that's no problem
But I notice /usr/src/UPDATING contains the following:
The 'audit' group was added to support the new auditing functionality
in the base system. Be sure to follow the directions for updating,
including the requirement to run mergemaster -p.
So I figure after rebooting into single user mode and installing the new
world, I have to take an extra step? I never figured out how to deal with
the binary password db with etc merge, and I can't see anything in the man
I hope someone can clear it up. I assume etcmerge is widely used, but it's
not been updated (significantly) for so long I'm not sure. (Personally I
think it should be in the base system!)
