I'm trying to upgrade FreeBSD from source, but my /usr/src directory
is empty. "Absolute FreeBSD" glibly says to "grab the source tarball
from a FreeBSD mirror".
I found a list of mirrors here:
But it isn't clear to me which tarball I need to 'grab', or where it
is on the mirror.
Basically, I want to get to the point where I can type:
And build FreeBSD 7.1-RELEASE
I'd like to download the source to the server, rather than inserting
a CD in the machine, since I"m 2 hours away from the machine.
