The way I install openBSD is from a snapshot. I work
with the snapshot for a few months before doing a
fresh install with another. I will sometimes upgrade.
I also pull down ports and src tarballs no later than
a day after I have installed openBSD.
Should I ever cvs up my port tree without doing a cvs
up and re-compile of my kernel and userland?
For example, with firefox 1.0.1 soon to be available,
can I do a pkg_delete of my old firefox and pkg_add of
the new version without re-doing my kernel and
userland? Or can I compile sources from the port tree
after I have done an cvs update?
for major changes in -current. If libraries have
changed, then I just do a fresh install.
Anyway, just looking for advice for how closely I need
to maintain the gap between my snapshot install and
any cvs updates to my port tree (assuming no flag
