When following the instructions at
to go from 8.1 to 8.2, I'm presented during the command:
freebsd-update upgrade -r 8.2-RELEASE
with no less than *** 322 *** files that differ only by the CVS tag.
After hitting about 150 of these with "ret ret ret dd dd dd ret dd : wq
ret", I'm really frustrated, because I made a mistake and now apparently
have to start over.
Why doesn't the freebsd-update command invoke mergemaster with -F?
Or is there some step that I'm leaving out?
