I have a 4.9-RELEASE installation. It was recently pointed out to me that to get all the bug fixes and security fixes, I need to cvsup with "RELENG_4_9", not "RELENG_4_9_0_RELEASE". So...here's the src-supfile I am using:
*default release=cvs tag=.
*default delete use-rel-suffix
src-all doc-all ***** (does the tag=. matter here?) I run it with cvsup -g -L 2 src-supfile glance over /etc/make.conf cd /usr/src make buildworld make buildkernel make installkernel reboot into single user mode with "boot -s" mergemaster -p make installworld mergemaster reboot into normal multiuser mode
One source I found said that they allow mergemaster to pretty much overwrite files unless it is asking about
This is an update from 4.9 release to the (hopefully) security updated version, and the system is running a generic kernel and is a pretty stock install (some ports are in place, but port updates are done separately, as I understand it)
Are there any steps or pieces of advice I'm missing here? Advice/explanations/etc. are all appreciated. Thanks!
