There is some conflicting info in the the i386 install document that
I want to confirm before I begin this upgrade from 1.5.2.
A) In the section titled "Upgrade" just before "Preparing your System
for NetBSD installation"
"you should NOT upgrade the etc distribution; it contains system
configuration files that you should review and update by hand."
B) But later on under "Upgrading a previously-installed NetBSD System,
"The original /etc directory is renamed to /etc.old, and no attempt
is made to merge any of the previous config into the new config except
C) On running "postinstall" it states:
"The following issues can generally be resolved by extracting
the etc set
into a temporary directory and running postinstall."
pax -zrpe -f /downloads/161/etc.tgz
So... do I extract the etc.tgz set during the sysinstall upgrade or not?
There is one section that says "Do it", and two that say "Don't".
