AFAIK distribution sets target a particular -RELEASE branch not -STABLE or -RELENG. From sysinstall, select Options and set the Release Name to "4.7-RELEASE", and you should be good to go. I am not aware of the consequences (if any) of doing this. Ideally, you should build from the sources. # cd /usr/src/lib/compat/compatXX # make install See the make.conf man page for info on building compat libs during buildworld. -- Robin Damm <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> To Unsubscribe: send mail to [EMAIL PROTECTED] with "unsubscribe freebsd-questions" in the body of the message
