As i was going thru the "UPDATING" file, do i need to compile the new
first before doing make world ?? Also how do i create a rescue disk ??
Please suggest other cautions too!
My usual procedure is,
(using pre-tweaked kernel config)
cvsup -g -L2 supfile
make buildkernel KERNCONF=MYKERNEL
make installkernel KERNCONF=MYKERNEL
compare it manually and
(cd /dev; sh MAKEDEV all)
at least check all of the rc* and defaults files
better the whole etc stuff before rebooting.
if updating remote systems try it locally on a box in advance :-)
And, still being paranoid, I might start doing a mergemaster -p before
the buildworld, although I'm not sure it should be a standard
practice. I can see it leading to some when adjusting files in /etc
before actually building the new world.
