FreeBSD 10.0 upgrade

Postby trigggl » Tue Jan 21, 2014 8:42 pm

For some reason I decided I want to try to upgrade to 10.0 now that it's released. 'freebsd-update' of course complains that the kernel is a GhostBSD kernel and that it has to be updated manually before running 'freebsd-update install' (which it warned me about after running it). Is there a way to update the GhostBSD flavor of the kernel, or do I need to switch to a GENERIC one?

I've read about this, because I've recompiled my kernel already. What I understand is that if the contents of /boot/old_kernel are the original you make a directory named GENERIC and copy the contents of old_kernel into GENERIC. Then it should update okay.

The route I took was to install a completely generic kernel from source and it's going ok, so far. I suppose I could just copy the GhostBSD version of the kernel over after the release based on FreeBSD 10.00 comes out.
