However in the "security advisories" the second option is to download this file and patch the existing source and do a "makeworld"
here is an excerpt of the latest advisory --- a) Download the relevant patch from the location below, and verify the detached PGP signature using your PGP utility.
# fetch ftp://ftp.FreeBSD.org/pub/FreeBSD/CERT/patches/SA-04:05/openssl.patch
# fetch ftp://ftp.FreeBSD.org/pub/FreeBSD/CERT/patches/SA-04:05/ openssl.patch.asc
b) Execute the following commands as root:
# cd /usr/src # patch < /path/to/patch
c) Recompile the operating system as described in
<URL: http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/ makeworld.html >.
It seem the "makeworld" process is the only way to keep the system patched.
If a tag just the 4_9 Release in the CVSupfile can i just ignore the mergemaster? also can I just CVSup the sources and build the ones I want? (see above)
Thanks in advance
