I went through this last week. I use the 7.0 install disk to do an *upgrade* installation over the old one, booted into the new amd64 system, and upgraded kernel and world. Next, I manually reinstalled databases/db47, lang/ruby18, databases/ruby-bdb, and ports-mgmt/portupgrade. When that was done, I ran "portupgrade -fa" to recompile all the ports on my system. The only gotchas I had were that Berkeley databases aren't portable from 32-bit to 64-bit systems, and I used quite a few. A word to the wise: dump PostgreSQL to a text file before the upgrade. -- Kirk Strauser _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
