Thank you Tim for the answers! So far I have used freebsd-update to apply updates. I seem to recall that it is never good to mix the two systems (freebsd-updates and csup) to avoid trouble. Is that true? Also, the documentation you mention (24.7.1) says this: After installkernel finishes successfully, you should boot in single user mode (i.e. using boot -s from the loader prompt). How can this be done with a remote machine? -- Zbigniew Szalbot www.slowo.pl www.fairtrade.net.pl _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
