well I was thinking either I do binary updates or recompile updates. My first question started off with "can I get security fixes with out recompiling?".
I knew about upgrade in sysinstall, but the word was that gets the release specified, not necessarily security fixes. So then I thought you have to recompile to get updates. But freebsd-update was then introduced to me. But It complained since we had to recompile the src for the release (5.1) to get certain features in the kernel. So I am still stuck with the question "can I get security fixes with out recompiling?". R.
