AFIK, that was 4.x -> 5/6 OR Ports, which are bound to be a problem across major versions.* Also, 8.x has a recent change which prevents easy upgrading from early versions of 5/6(/7?). In any case, I had no problems upgrading to 7 via normal methods as outlined in /usr/src/UPDATING for two machines running 6.x * literally everything explodes and your fish dies. -- -- _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
