If you re-install, you're stuck with a GENERIC kernel, unless you recompile that afterwards which is extra work. > I've do this sometime ago because I don't have 7.0-Beta CD-rom, and I've > install a 6.2 and make what you say...but for me rebuild all ports it's > same thing to make a new-installation. After a major version update you'll have to rebuild all ports anyway. But it seems that portupgrade is up to the task as well. I would go for a new install if I wanted to change the relative sizes of my partitions. Otherwise I'd stick with the source upgrade, because it is not as much work IMHO.
