Yes, but how is that so different from installing a new world for an old kernel? When you have built a new kernel, you must reboot to start using it. After running make installworld with the new kernel, you have the new world installed as well. Your new kernel will only be running for a few minutes with the old world, until the new one is fully installed. > > -----Original Message----- > From: Daniel Bye > Sent: Wednesday, February 26, 2003 9:40 AM > To: [EMAIL PROTECTED] [EMAIL PROTECTED] > Subject: Re: 4.7 Upgrade issue > > On Wed, Feb 26, 2003 at 03:23:28PM +0100, Pierrick Brossin wrote: > > Quoting rew : > > > > > You must installkernel and reboot before you can installworld. > > > Read > > > http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/makeworld.html > > > for more details. > > > > > > Daniel Bye > > > > Hi Daniel ! > > > > I made/installed kernel and world quite a few times now and never, never, > > never reboot before installing world ! > > > > - make world > > - install world > > - make kernel > > - install kernel > > This looks like the old way of doing things.
