I have now changed from cvsup.dk.freebsd.org to cvsup.freebsd.org with no
These are the steps I do (and have done for ages):
# cd /usr/src
# make clean cleandir
# cd ..
# rm -rf src/* obj/*
# csup stable-supfile-7
# cd /usr/src
# make buildworld
# make buildkernel
# make installkernel
# mergemaster -p
# make installworld
# mergemaster -U -i
I see that there are a newer BIOS on the HP homepage for this DL385. I
will try to update the BIOS later this week.
The servers are not up to be in production until early november, so there
are some time to test things.
