Painless FreeBSD System Updating
Posted on: 04/27/2004 01:01 PM

I noticed a link to a FreeBSD CVSup how-to over at OSNews. For those of you relatively new to the world of FreeBSD, this might be interesting.
One of the greatest advantages that *BSD has over other Unix variants is the cvsup/make world process. Unlike most Linux distributions it isn't necessary to wait months for a new version to be released for you to upgrade your system. The cvsup/make world process allows you to update your system at any time. I'm going to show you how to make the process as painless as possible.
Take a look.
