Thank you Tim for the answers! So far I have used freebsd-update to
apply updates. I seem to recall that it is never good to mix the two
systems (freebsd-updates and csup) to avoid trouble. Is that true?
Also, the documentation you mention (24.7.1) says this:
After installkernel finishes successfully, you should boot in single
user mode (i.e. using boot -s from the loader prompt).
How can this be done with a remote machine?
