How do I know the kernel has not become corrupted? Actually, as I think about it, I should probably rebuild the kernel anyway to work with packet filters. Here are my notes from the last time I updated:
/usr/src/UPDATING and /usr/src/Makefile?
I'm not sure what I mean by the above, but should I use the Makefile and not UPDATING?
synch your source to 6.2
How? And is this necessary since it's already at 6.2?
cvsup -g -L 2 supfile
make clean;make cleanworld
# back up any custom config there is
cp GENERIC BACKUP_CONFIG
make buildkernel KERNCONF=LOCAL # use this from now on!
make installkernel KERNCONF=LOCAL # use this from now on!
# Note: LOCAL is a copy of GENERIC in the same folder (/usr/src/sys/i386/conf/GENERIC)
# with changes for pf as follows:
# # Packet Filters
# device pf
# device pflog
# device pfsync
# options ALTQ
# options ALTQ_CBQ # Class Bases Queuing (CBQ)
# options ALTQ_RED # Random Early Detection (RED)
# options ALTQ_RIO # RED In/Out
# options ALTQ_HFSC # Hierarchical Packet Scheduler (HFSC)
# options ALTQ_PRIQ # Priority Queuing (PRIQ)
sh /etc/rc.shutdown # kills all your services
/usr/local/bin/portmanager -u -f -l -y
What happens if my internet connection dies when I'm doing this? Will I still be able to SSH into my box?
