Hi folks, from different sources I have written my steps to compile a new kernel & upgrade to the latest sources. Can anyone have a look into them and tell me if I won't run into troubles or if there are better ways to achieve the same?
Upgrade procedure to the newest freebsd kernel and userland. 1.Make sure that the cvsup file (src-supfile) is adjusted in the right way. 2.Cd /usr/src/sys/amd64/conf which contains the file MYKERNEL 3.MYKERNEL is then adjusted, if necessary and copied to root/kernels/MYKERNEL 4.Copy everything under /etc to /root/etc 5.cvsup -g -L 2 src-supfile 6.cd /usr/src 7.make cleanworld 8.make buildworld 9.make buildkernel KERNCONF=MYKERNEL 10.Go into single user mode 11.If the new kernel doesn't boot reboot and hit the space bar at the boot prompt and boot kernel.old If the new kernel boots OK mount -a 12.cd /usr/src 13.make installkernel KERNCONF=MYKERNEL 14.Go into single user mode 15.cd /usr/src 16.mergemaster -p 17.make installworld 18.mergemaster -i 19.exit and reboot Is this ok? Or have I forgot about something? I'm running a freebsd 6.1 machine on a amd64 system with an adjusted kernel called MYKERNEL.
