I'd like to put the steps for upgrading from 1.3.X to -current up
on www.netbsd.org to give people a 'helping hand'.
Something along the lines of:
cd /usr/src/usr.sbin/config ; make && make install
cd /sys/arch/<arch>/conf ; cp GENERIC MYCONF
vi MYCONF # (make any changes you need)
cd ../compile/MYCONF ; make
mv /netbsd /onetbsd
mv netbsd /
cd /usr/src/share/mk ; make install
cd /usr/src/gnu/usr.bin/ld ??????????
Its around here I think help is needed
cd /usr/src ; make build
The only 1.3 system I have here that I can take to -current is a
vax, which would take some significant time each time around the
'compile, change, try compile again' cycle.
Has anyone recently moved to -current from 1.3.X, or is about to
do so and can let me know any problems they hit?
Otherwise I can take my sun back to 1.3 and update again, but even
on a little IPX with NFS mounted /usr/src it'll take me a while -
and someone out there _must_ be moving to -current :)
