this is the wrong list to ask such questions. I referred your email to the more appropriate list "freebsd-questions". You might also find that the handbook can be quite helpful. > 1.

How do developers usually keep their kernel sources in sync with the > main Central Kernel source? Do we use CVS or Subversion for this? Use a cvsup file along these lines: --- *default host=cvsup.XXX.FreeBSD.org *default base=/home/YYYY/.cvsupdb *default prefix=/home/YYYY/fcvs *default release=cvs *default delete use-rel-suffix *default compress src-all ports-all doc-all www cvsroot-all --- After that "cvs -d /home/YYYY/fcvs co src" will get you up and running. Ready to do "cvs diff -u" to check for the local changes you made etc. As a side note: If you can't figure out simple questions like this by your self, you will have a hard time to do actual development. We provide a large amount of documentation, but you must use it yourself! -- /"\ Best regards, | [EMAIL PROTECTED] \ / Max Laier | ICQ #67774661 X http://pf4freebsd.love2party.net/ | [EMAIL PROTECTED] / \ ASCII Ribbon Campaign | Against HTML Mail and News
