How to upgrade FreeBSD system via CVSup

Posted by free4net on September 12, 2008

Today, i need to upgrade a freebsd server that has been created for long time ago.
It runs on freebsd 6.0 release version, so i want to upgrade it to 6.3 stable version.
Here is my procedure for system upgrade

#vi /tmp/stable-supfile —> modify supfile for stable

# The following line is for 6-stable. If you want 5-stable, 4-stable,
# 3-stable, or 2.2-stable, change to “RELENG_5”, “RELENG_4”, “RELENG_3”,
# or “RELENG_2_2” respectively.
*default release=cvs tag=RELENG_6

#cvsup -g -L 2 /tmp/stable-supfile
#cd /usr/src
#make buildworld
#make buildkernel KERNCONF=GENERIC
#make installkernel KERNCONF=GENERIC
#make installworld
#mergemaster
#reboot

Startup Free4net Zone today!

First, i have to say that my English is very poor so i can’t be a great writer but still want to write down what i have learned about computer. I’m a Linux guy. I work on a Windows and Linux network for a living.Do you know what did i do five years ago that i was a network engineer and using Windows OS for my main PC. However, I helped the company design the network infrastructure that include the Windows, Linux and FreeBSD. This is very strange! Company’s network infrastructure was used to FreeBSD, Windows, Linux, but my PC was still using Windows.

Now, I’m a department manger not a network engineer but i am using openSUSE. OpenSUSE will live up to the demand for a better desktop Linux of my PC.

Sorry for my poor English again. I just want to write down more about computer technology what i have learned. I also wish it can help you in future.
