actually, yes, i do delete my config. no, i dont keep a copy in my /root/ dir... as the whole thing is backed up in rotation to my netbackup server. so after i delete it all, and cvsup, i just run a restore job of all my custom kernel files that live in ../i386/conf. 6 one way, 1/2 dozen the other. :) cheers, jonathan _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
