If i get you correctly, you're trying to run a 4.10 kernel on a 4.8 system. (?) if so, you're really on your own here and destined to bang your head against the wall trying to get this to work. rather unlike linux, the FBSD system is an integrated whole, not mix and match. if you want to take advantage of features available under 4.10, you will need to upgrade your system. the process is rather straightforward and there is significant documentation covering the necessary steps (handbook and google are good sources here -- though do _avoid_ the advice given at bsdnews.org) if i've misunderstand your intention, apologies. cheers, epi > Help?! > > TIA > > rip > > _______________________________________________ > [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list > http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions > To unsubscribe, send any mail to > "[EMAIL PROTECTED]" > _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
