Thank you all for your help so far. I have successfully patched the
tree from date=2010. with the patch from Dec 18th as a
starter and compiled the kernel and world without errors. With these, I
have upgraded a zpool, which resides on a geli encrypted hd-partition
and on which I have the homes, /usr, /var and /tmp and /compat. I
upgraded the zfs as well. All is well so far and I have (apart from a
probably unrelated geli issue¹ I am having) not noticed anything

I have now two questions:

1) Am I correct, that before upgrading the rpool and zfs I am booting
from, I should run "gpart bootcode -b /boot/pmbr -p /boot/gptzfsboot -i
1 ada0", if my freebsd-boot resides on the first gpt provider?

2) I noticed Martin Matuska's site patches more recent than Dec 18th,
but marked nopython. What do these mean and can/should I try these
also? I remember reading somewhere about this, but I cannot find


Thank you all for your help, kind regards,
Christopher J. Ruwe
