This is not a problem with freebsd-update. The kernel has not changed between -p2 and -p3, so freebsd-update will not get you an updated one. If you recompile the kernel afterwards, it will show -p3 because of the change in /usr/src/sys/conf/newvers.sh (this changes everytime freebsd-update gets new updates, regardless of whether the kernel is updated or not). So, simply by recompiling the kernel you will get the -p3 indication, though nothing much else in this case.
I had a thought the other day that it should be possible to to providethe system patch level as data within a very small KLD module. That way freebsd-update could change the value without having to supply a whole
new kernel and without having to reboot. Cheers, Matthew -- Dr Matthew J Seaman MA, D.Phil. 7 Priory Courtyard Flat 3 PGP: http://www.infracaninophile.co.uk/pgpkey Ramsgate Kent, CT11 9PW
