Not very painful, though I would definitely recommend a backup. Even though the upgrade process is quite reliable, it is easy to make a mistake or change your mind about something in the middle and so you might want your old files. If your old files are pretty well separated from the system and third party installs -- one of the primary reasons for keeping all home directories, system web pages and databases, etc in separate file systems -- then it might be just as easy to do those backups and then do a scratch install of 6.2, csup everything to the very latest and add the ports, get everything like you want it and then reload those data items - or you might not even have to reload them if everything points to the same places. But, the upgrade will work well too. I just am inclined to do scratch installs when they will be easy. ////jerry > > thanks... > > _______________________________________________ > firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list > http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions > To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]" > _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
