I was looking aroung trying to find a decent howto on CVSUP...seeing as
ive never had good luck with it .. i found this ...does this look like the
right procedure ??
this is what ive been doing ...but ive only had it actually work one time
..all  other systems ive done this on,,,it has failed BADLY
hence cant do "ps" or "w" or other needed commands

Create /usr/local/etc/cvsup/sup/supfile:
*default host=cvsup8.FreeBSD.org
*default base=/usr/local/etc/cvsup
*default prefix=/usr
*default release=cvs tag=RELENG_4
*default delete use-rel-suffix
*default compress
src-all
ports-all tag=.

then let cvs run in crontab and get all the new src...
then did:


cd /usr/src
make buildworld
make buildkernel kernconf={kern conf name}
(optional--boot into single user mode)
make installworld
mergemaster -p


please help ...as i need to update a whole bunch of systems because of the
latest cert releases...

thanx
