Upgrading to a -stable kernel under FreeBsd
First you need to be root so:
Now since ur are root cd into:
Now, that u are in the correct dir, ee, vi, or what ever editor you like to use to:
In there you will see: CHANGE_THIS. Do what it says and change it to: cvsup1.freebsd.org
Well then exit saveing your work. Then do:
ok after cvsup is done, you go in to
then... type "make world" with out the qoutes of course. that will take a long time, anyhow.
after that's done you have to recompile your kernel.
so you go into /usr/src/sys/i386/conf.
do a ls, so you can see a list of files.
anyhow you will see GENERIC and LINT and NEWCARD.
GENERIC is your kernel but you dont want to copile generic.
so what you do is.
>cp GENERIC "WHAT YOU WANT YOUR KERNEL NAME TO BE"
example: say i want my kernel name to by BLAH so what i do is
>cp GENERIC BLAH
than do a
example, remember when i made my kernel name be BLAH?
well i would do a "config BLAH" got it?
allright it will tell you
"Don't forget to do a "make depend"
Kernel build directory is ../../compile/BLAH
so i go there... examp. cd ../../compile/BLAH
then when im there i do a...
you can do these seperate but i do them all to gather.
make depend && make && make install
after that's done, reboot, and you will see when you login it will say 4.X STABLE. and that means you just upgraded!!
