Dear all, I hope you can help me understand various ways to patch FBSD system. Today I got a FreeBSD Security Advisory which advised me to apply libarchive.patch. Which I did. All went file. But then I issued freebsd-update fetch and the system fetched two metapatches or so. I went ahead and installed them (it took less than a second) so don't know if they were really installed. I guess these were the same patches for libarchive.
I think I am doing a bad thing mixing these two patching systems. What should I do now? Should I go back and revert some changes? FreeBSD szalbot.homedns.org 6.2-RELEASE-p5 FreeBSD 6.2-RELEASE-p5 #3: Wed Jul 4 08:21:48 CEST 2007 [EMAIL PROTECTED]:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/SZALBOT i386 When I issue freebsd-update fetch, I get Looking up update.FreeBSD.org mirrors... 1 mirrors found. Fetching metadata signature from update1.FreeBSD.org... done. Fetching metadata index... done. Inspecting system... done. Preparing to download files... done. No updates needed to update system to 6.2-RELEASE-p6. Am I safe to continue patching the system either way or should I keep only to one? Many thanks for your advice!
