            Bug ID: 204914
           Summary: freebsd-update installs source too late
           Product: Base System
           Version: 10.1-RELEASE
          Hardware: Any
                OS: Any
            Status: New
          Severity: Affects Many People
          Priority: ---
         Component: bin
          Assignee: freebsd-bugs at FreeBSD.org
          Reporter: ari at ish.com.au

After running

# freebsd-update upgrade -r 10.2

from 10.1 with a custom kernel, I get this message

WARNING: This system is running a "smash" kernel, which is not a
kernel configuration distributed as part of FreeBSD 10.1-RELEASE.
This kernel will not be updated: you MUST update the kernel manually
before running "/usr/sbin/freebsd-update install".

This message is wrong. Because src/src is one of the components installed by
the  "freebsd-update install", you need to build and install the kernel
manually AFTER running "freebsd-update install".

However this is still not ideal, because by then you've installed the complete
userland. Instead, freebsd-update should install src/src in the same first
phase of install as it normally would install the kernel.

You are receiving this mail because:
You are the assignee for the bug.
