Hello again,

It should be enough to just building and installing the kernel. The
freebsd-update should have patched the kernel src files anyway.
Thank you for very helpful advice. One last question, is it necessary to restart the machine? Or can I keep it online after building and installing the kernel? I don't care about uname -a details not being updated unless the machine needs restarting to include the updates.


Thank you!

Zbigniew Szalbot

Norman
