Hi, Is this procedure complete for a manual binary upgrade from cdrom? Thanks, Daren. Assume no ports installed and /cdrom contains the new distribution. 1. Backup /etc of the target installation. 2. Boot from the distribution cdrom and run the shell. 3. Mount the filesystems of the target installation under /mnt. 4. Set DESTDIR to /mnt. 5. In /cdrom/x.x-RELEASE run install.sh for base, kernels, manpages. 6. Use the /cdrom/x.x-RELEASE/ base.mtree kernels.mtree manpages.mtree to locate obsolete files and remove. 7. Merge the old etc with the new etc. 8. Reboot.
