Just make sure to read /usr/src/UPDATING and see if anything important changed from 4.6 to 4.8. > Second question, if I do want to upgrade (painlessly) to 4.8, which > of the following should I be CVSup-ing?

RELENG_4_8_0_RELEASE tags what was burned onto the 4.8 CDs being sold and offered for FTP download, and will never change. RELENG_4_8 is a brach tag, and will include all security patches applicable to 4.8, so you probably want to use that. -- Dan Nelson [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
