Down... -- er -- regrading to STABLE is certainly possible, but not what most people would think of as easy. One major stumpling block is that UFS2 in 5-CURRENT isn't supported in 4-STABLE, so unless you happened to specifically create all of your 5.x filesystems using the old UFS, you're going to have to wipe and re-install loads of stuff. If you do decide to jump to 4.9-STABLE then probably the simplest way to do things is to backup any data you need to save, make notes about exactly how you've configured your system, what ports you have installed and all the other customizations you've done, and then just re-install 4.9-STABLE from scratch. -- Dr Matthew J Seaman MA, D.Phil. 26 The Paddocks Savill Way PGP: http://www.infracaninophile.co.uk/pgpkey Marlow Tel: +44 1628 476614 Bucks., SL7 1TH UK
