Last month, I asked about updating 3.5 remotely, and was advised by several
people to wait for the official 2.6 release. Also, I had two folks tell me
it was possible by carefully creating a new etc, and then untarring the
distribution on top of the existing.
Well, I spent several hours cataloging the etc differences between 2.5 and 2.6,
at least as seen on my machine. I'm a bit nervous about 2 things:
1) hostname.ep0 was automatically generated during 2.5 install, but now the
new netstart seems to do things differently, and the comments reference a
non-existant man page for hostname.if*. What's up?
2) sshd_config has major changes, and doesn't seem to reference ssh_host_key
anymore. What else do I need to know?
Since the whole point is that network interfaces have to come back after
the reboot, and ssh is the only allowed access, these two have to work!
Here are my notes on the files I found changed:
disklabels/ was empty in 2.5
fstab (cp -p)
group.bak unchanged from 2.5 and 2.6 group
host.random (cp -p)
hostname.ep0 (cp -p)
mygate (cp -p)
resolv.conf (cp -p)
changelist many additions
hosts new header (update with correct names)
inetd.conf ftp, telnet, login, default off! (good)
magic SIDtunes added, but no version change?
netstart major change to hostname.xxx, but no man page.
newsyslog.conf no kerberos.log
printcap #rp|remote line printer
rc many changes
rc.local no sshd, add netatalk
services imap, hunt
ssh_config minor changes
sshd_config major changes
sysctl.conf IPsec not on by default?
weekly minor changes
group (mv group group.bak;cp -p)
localtime (cp -R)
master.passwd (cp -p)
motd leave until next compile?
myname (cp -p)
passwd (cp -p)
