"Changing /boot/kernel dir" - N. Ersen SISECI - (2007-07-24 08:43:09)   [7485]

make installkernel KERNCONF=YOURCONFIG this will install your new kernel in /boot/kernel and put old kernel as /boot/kernel.old, if something will go wrong in new kernel you will not be able to boot remotely, so this should be better in case of fauly new installed kernel:


# cd /usr/src
# make buildworld
# make buildkernel KERNCONF=YOURCONFIG
# make installkernel KERNCONF=YOURCONFIG KODIR=/boot/testing
# nextboot -k testing
# shutdown -r now

this will install new kernel in /boot/testing and left original in /boot/kernel , remember to specify nextboot -k testing before every reboot, then after syccesfully upgrade move /boot/kernel to /boot/kernel.old and /boot/testing to /boot/testing.
