Have you verified in /etc/freebsd-update.conf that "src" is definitely part of what should be updated? > Step 2: make buildworld > Step 3: make build_kernel KERNCONF=LAFN > Step 4: make install_kernel KERNCONF=LAFN I assume the correct targets "buildkernel" and "installkernel" have been used. ;-) > Step 5: reboot Attention: Into single-user mode. > Step 6: mergemaster -p > Step 7: make installworld > Step 8: mergemaster -i > Step 9: make delete-old > Step 10: reboot Into multi-user mode again. > oops, something went wrong.. > > After step 5, uname -a still showed 9.2 but now it listed the > kernel I built rather than generic. Again, verify your configuration. Compare your steps with the comment header of /usr/src/Makefile which illustrates the exact procedure; from a (dated) 8-STABLE installation: 1. `cd /usr/src' (or to the directory containing your source tree). 2. `make buildworld' 3. `make buildkernel KERNCONF=YOUR_KERNEL_HERE' (default is GENERIC). 4. `make installkernel KERNCONF=YOUR_KERNEL_HERE' (default is GENERIC). [steps 3. & 4. can be combined by using the "kernel" target] 5. `reboot' (in single user mode: boot -s from the loader prompt). 6. `mergemaster -p' 7. `make installworld' 8. `make delete-old' 9. `mergemaster' (you may wish to use -i, along with -U or -F). 10. `reboot' 11. `make delete-old-libs' (in case no 3rd party program uses them anymore) -- Polytropon Magdeburg, Germany Happy FreeBSD user since 4.0 Andra moi ennepe, Mousa, ... _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
