RE: 6.1-PRERELEASE CVSUP tag=???

2006-04-12 Thread Ted Mittelstaedt

I just did a make release using RELENG_6_1

The announcement your referring to is consistent with the docs, but I
switched
tags from RELENG_6 to RELENG_6_1 yesterday when I started having make
release commands fail, and that fixed the problem.  I think they started
the new
tag early.

Take a look at the announcement here:

The tag you want is RELENG_6.  It will become RELENG_6_1 when the
official release is made.

The transition from 6.0 to 6.1 went smoothly here, so you should be good
to go with the new src tree.

the branch for 6.1 was cut on the 5th, you can cvsup to 6.1 now using

RELENG_6_1 has been branched, but the tags for the release haven't
been laid down yet.  When they are, the tag will presumably be 
RELENG_6_1_0_RELEASE.

Thanks Dan,
I appreciate you answering me so soon.
My  upgrade from RELENG_6_0 went without a hitch.
So I'm off to makeworld land. Hopefully I'll be back in few days.
Looks like I have slave hard drive failing as well ...so fun fun.



My pleasure.  As for the failing HDD, I went through the very same thing
last week with one of the data disks on my home file/mail server.  Lost
loads of mail (about three years' worth), and all sorts of other stuff.
I am never buying another IBM DeathStar!  You would not believe how fast
the damn thing went sour...

Anyways, best of luck saving your data!
  
Dan


  
Fortunately there was no data on it yet since I just got the server up 
to 6.0.


But back to the topic, it looks like I jumped the gun on the PRERELEASE 
update here. I have already CVSUPed the sources and ran 'make 
buildworld' and 'make buildkernel'. I have not installed anything yet. 
Once everybody settles on what the new tag for 6.1 will be, can I just 
re-run 'make buildworld' and 'make buildkernel' and go from there???

Yes I'm sure, they just haven't changed the names yet because

Oh and if you've already sync'd up to RELENG_6 and rebuilt world etc.
you don't have to redo everything. Just change your supfile to

 What is the cvsup tag for getting  6.1-PRERELEASE src?
 
 I think it should be tag=RELENG_6_1 .
 
 Can I use src-all for this revision to upgrade from where I am now?
 
 Right now I am:   ...  6.0-RELEASE-p6 #0: Tue Apr  4 09:43:53 MDT 
 2006 ...

Take a look at the announcement here:

http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-hackers/2006-March/015730.html

The tag you want is RELENG_6.  It will become RELENG_6_1 when the
official release is made.

The transition from 6.0 to 6.1 went smoothly here, so you should be good
to go with the new src tree.

the branch for 6.1 was cut on the 5th, you can cvsup to 6.1 now using
the RELENG_6_1 tag... at this point if you sync up with RELENG_6 you
will drive passed 6.1.
