Hi folks,

from different sources I have written my steps to
compile a new kernel & upgrade to the latest sources.

doesn't /usr/src/UPDATING istn't enough for you? Anyway...

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
3.MYKERNEL is then adjusted, if necessary and copied
to root/kernels/MYKERNEL
4.Copy everything under /etc to /root/etc
you don't need it. mergemaster will take care of your /etc directory

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
Point 9) won't install a new kernel, just compile it.
modify to 9) make kernel KERNCONF=MYKERNEL

13.make installkernel KERNCONF=MYKERNEL
already done at 9)

Thanks inadvanced,
