I could still do a "full" buildworld when necessary.
Not if the 'partial build' produces a system that's not working good enough to do a full buildworld though :( If you know what you're doing, it's possible -- most of the time -- to get away with something like this: $ cd /usr/src $ cvs -qR up -APd $ cd usr.bin/foo/ $ make clean all install But this isn't guaranteed to always work and it cannot be automated in the way that you might be thinking of (i.e. run a couple of commands and let everything magically fall into place). The most automated way of building stuff is practically a crontab script that runs: if [ ! -f /root/.noautobuildworld ]; then cvsup -g -L 2 -h cvsup-server.example.net /root/supfile cd /usr/src && \ make buildworld fi Output shall be mailed to root, since this is called from crontab, and you'll be able to `touch /root/.noautobuildworld' to inhibit automatic buildworlds and use the last known good build from /usr/obj to install your system with `make installworld' as usual.
