New to OpenBSD...trying to build a fairly complex (4 NIC) firewall/router,
replacing an aging RedHat 6.x system.
I've loaded 3.6-release from the CDs and done the cvs mambo to update both
src and ports to -stable. Seemed to work (despite having to deal with
"invalid MAC header errors...") that kept aborting the CVS processs...
I rebuilt the kernel per the FAQ (apparently successfully, since the system
still boots and "uuname -a" now gives "GENERIC#0" - any other way to tell?).
I did a "make build" to rebuild userland, as per the FAQ. It crunched for a
number of hours, spewed lots of compilation messages, and seemed to complete
without any obvious errors.
The problem is that userland doesn't seem to have changed. When I look at
the timestamps in /bin, /sbin, /usr/bin, and /usr/sbin, they're all back in
2004 - nothing new. I would have expected some executables to now say 2005,
yes, since they'd have changed with -stable versus the release versions?
Any enlightenment on how to tell I've got a new/updated/-stable userland or
not are welcome.
