If I understand Rob correctly all he needs is /usr/src/UPDATING file (after updating the source tree). here's mine on *FreeBSD 5*: # head -30 /usr/src/UPDATING Updating Information for FreeBSD 5.2.1 users [...snip...] The security advisories related to various patches contain information on how to build/install a minimal set of binaries and start/stop a minimal number of processes, if possible, for that patch. For those updates that don't have an advisory, or to be safe, you can do a full build and install as described in the COMMON ITEMS section. 20040630: p9 FreeBSD-SA-04.13.linux Correct an input validation error in the linux binary compatibility code. 20040526: p8 FreeBSD-SA-04:11.msync --END-- cheers, Karol -- Karol Kwiatkowski <freebsd at orchid dot homeunix dot org> _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
