For production.. it's best to use a -RELEASE from the -STABLE branch. You'd want RELENG_4_8 - which is 4.8-RELEASE + bug/security fixes. Hopefully that makes some kinda sense. :D _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
