Quick FreeBSD upgrade PDF
Sunday, 16 October 2011
Let's say we want to upgrade FreeBSD base (kernel and world) to latest version using FreeBSD's upgrade script, planing to delete packages/ports and rebuild them later.

This asumes that GENERIC kernel is installed.

First we will fetch new FreeBSD base binaries:

  freebsd-update -r 8.2-RELEASE upgrade

Then we install them in our system:

  freebsd-update install

If we previously had a custom kernel in our sistem we run:

  nextboot -k GENERIC

Then we reboot the machine.
