Is there a secure and tested way of updating the system?
I've updated a machine in another country remotely from
NetBSD 4.0_STABLE to 5.0_RC1 like this:
1.) Put NetBSD 5.0 kernel (with COMPAT_40 enabled!) and
NetBSD 5.0 sets on the machine.
2.) Install kernel to /netbsd and reboot.
3.) Untar userland (don't forget the "p" option of "tar"),
run "postinstall" and fix all problems, install new
bootblocks and reboot.
4.) Re-build all pkgsrc packages (in a change-root).
5.) Get rid of "COMPAT_SA" in the kernel configuration
to get rid of that problematic code with the next
kernel update. The functionality should already
have been disabled by "postinstall".
