Of course he can, I mean, that's what freebsd-update is intended for. At least, it's very useful if you want to follow the RELEASE path and only install the various security patches, so you don't have 7-STABLE, but, for example, 7.1-RELEASE-p5. This is a situation you will usually find on servers. -- Polytropon >From Magdeburg, Germany Happy FreeBSD user since 4.0 Andra moi ennepe, Mousa, ... _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
