I have three old FBSD 10 boxes that I need to upgrade. Ordinarily I do
this by building a new box with the latest OS then migrating services
and data. Unfortunately I don't have that option this time, the upgrade
has to happen in-place. My plan is to go from 10 to 11 then from 11 to 12.
I was looking at the "Upgrading FreeBSD" part of
unfortunately it seems to be missing a critical URL or two:
"The procedure for doing a source code based update is described in and ."
I tracked down where I think it points and the instructions appear to be
just for same-version updates. Can I safely move /usr/src out of the way
then check out the stable/11 and compile/install it or are there other
things I need to do?
