hello all, I have recently been mulling over an article which proposes an abridged set of steps for updating the system.
----------- http://www.bsdnews.org/03/bsd_update.php alias rebuild 'cd /usr/src && make update && make world && make kernel && mergemaster' ----------- in a nutshell, the author proposes the following steps: 1) rebuild 2) answer the mergemaster prompts 3) reboot 4) all done the method i employ requires several additional steps -- mergemaster -p, a reboot to test kernel (not strictly required, from what i understand), and booting to single user mode for install world. i am wondering what might be the hazards of trying the abridged approach. would be grateful to hear from anyone with an informed position on the matter. thank you, epi _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
