This is just a follow up with my previous mailings
I'm upgrading my 4.9 system to 4.10.

The steps I made were as follows and also what
happened after doing so.

First: I used the /stand/sysinstall-->Ugrade
(only bin selected..)--->100 % completed--->rebooted
can't load kernel... booting kernel.old...

So, I used the cvsup method and fetched the sources for the following...


Next, I went to /usr/src and did a make buildworld..
says something like... compile error...
(I think i missed some more needed sources)

So, I just did a make buildkernel... then... make installkernel

Last... I rebooted and then...

(I shouted YEAH BOOY!!! I'm invinsible!!!... and

I see something like loading kernel FreeBSD 4.10

Am I totally upgraded to freebsd 4.10 now?
Or its just the kernel that was upgraded and is it
possible?)Cause I didn't able to successfully make

If its just the kernel... Do you have any idea what
else from the sources that I've cvsuped must be
missing for me to be able to do a make buildworld and
make myself land in a perfect freebsd 4.10 userland?
And is it necessary to do a make buildworld?

One last thing... the GENERIC kernel configuration
located in my /usr/src/sys/i386/conf that I have
copied and edited before... Is it safe to use that
again??Is it the new 4.10 configuration file? Because
after compiling... I've lost the kernel support for my
sound card and atapicam driver...

Thanks a lot!!!


First, regarding the buildworld failure: yup, you probably missed some sources. Or, you forgot to set up /etc/make.conf properly. If you've never touched make.conf, buildworld assumes you have all sources. Since you downloaded only some of them, buildworld will eventually try to build something for which you do not have the sources. Using /etc/defaults/make.conf as a reference, setup make.conf to only build the stuff you think you need.

Second, regarding the status of your upgrade: my guess is that you're running a 4.10 kernel, and a partially 4.10 world. Check it out by running programs that interact closely with the kernel. ps(1) and top(1) are such programs. If they act "weird", you probably still haven't quite managed to upgrade.
