If you are running a GENERIC, unomdified (from CD) kernel, this will
be updated in the process. freebsd-update shows you a list of updated
files, and will also show /boot/kernel/kernel if this is updated. You
will also see source files in /usr/src/sys being updated on a kernel
update. Since I always run custom kernels, I just watch for changes
in /usr/src/sys. If there are updates there and you are running a
custom kernel, you will have to recompile it. Otherwise you don't
have to. The uname -a command will still report a previous
-p<version> until you recompile though.
Thanks! How do you go from there? I assume it is not necessary to
download sources since they have already been fetched by freebsd-update.
Just guessing you updated to 7.0-RELEASE-p2? This actually has kernel
updates in the TCP/IP code. True, you don't have to download sources,
you already got them.
I also run a custom kernel and I see modification date change in
/usr/src/sys/netinet so that's likely to mean I need to recompile the
kernel. Thank you again!
Yes, you simply repeat your last kernel build/install/reboot procedure,
i.e. something like:
make buildkernel installkernel KERNCONF=YOURKERNELNAME
and you are set!
