Hummm, after that all i reconsider if i did the rigth thing ??
I upgrade from 5.3-beta7 to 5.3-RELEASE as follows :
-Changed in /stand/sysinstall.. Options: 5.3-7 to 5.3-RELEASE
-Then did simply an upgrade.
And all was downloaded and installed, but not xorg where xorg-librairies
won't install :(
A uname -a chows effectively 5.3-RELEASE .
Anybody can confirm this method of upgrading ?
