Hi list, One thing, that is making me _not_ using FreeBSD is, that I see no way to easily upgrade from, say 5.1 to 5.2 (just an example), over network. I mean, I have a server running, to which I have no physical access. The only way to maintain it, is over SSH. The upgrade instructions in INSTALL.txt suggest putting in the CD, and using sysinstall for a binary upgrade. That is no option for me.
What I am looking for is an upgrade method which - can be used over an SSH connection - is not too difficult (like manually placing each piece in the right place) - does not leave old stuff on the HD (like the sysinstall method does, AFAIK) ... to make it short, something like the ports system (especially portupgrade) does with non-system apps would be cool. Is there a way to achieve that? This would be the one bit, which would make me switch to FreeBSD. /Roman
