FreeBSD 6.0-RELEASE upgrade. What am I doing wrong?


I've been trying to upgrade from RC1 to RELEASE for a couple days and I'm having a problem. I update the sources via cvsup stable-supfile. I then build, install, and reboot using the usual methods. After reboot it shows that RC1 is still installed. Shouldn't is show 6.0-RELEASE? What could I be doing wrong?

This is the tag line from the stable-supfile:

*default release=cvs tag=RELENG_6

Thanks for your help.

Did you rebuild the kernel as well or just world?

Well, yes, since that is part of the process. I've repeated the process about four time since Friday and still no success.

Hey, we check the simple things first.

Do a:
`grep REVISION /usr/src/sys/conf/newvers.sh; grep BRANCH /usr/src/sys/conf/newvers.sh`

And put the output here. What you see here should be what uname reports for the verson number. Let's make sure you have the most current sources.

Note: it will be 6.0-STABLE not RELEASE

Are you sure you are following those steps below?If so change RELENG_6 to RELENG_6_0. Don't forget to cvsup before.

Code:
cd /usr/src;
make buildworld;
make buildkernel KERNCONF=MYCUSTOM_KERNEL;
make installkernel KERNCONF=MY_CUSTOM_KERNEL;
reboot;

in single mode;

mount /;
mergemaster -p;
cd /usr/src;
make installworld;
mergemaster;
reboot;

Here's the output.

REVISION="6.0"
RELEASE="${REVISION}-${BRANCH}"
BRANCH="RC1"
if [ "X${BRANCH_OVERRIDE}" != "X" ]; then
BRANCH=${BRANCH_OVERRIDE}
RELEASE="${REVISION}-${BRANCH}"

Okay, something is up... because you have the older sources. Have you tried updating again?

Yes. As I said, I've done this about five time so far. I changed RELENG_6 to RELENG_6_0 in the supfile and tried again last night. Still no good.

If I still have the older sources, would it help to delete everything in /usr/src/?

Can I upgrade from the ISOs?

FIXED! NOT BROKEN!

I changed the default cvsup host and that seems to have solved the problem. The output from the previous search now reads:

REVISION="6.0"
RELEASE="${REVISION}-${BRANCH}"
BRANCH="RELEASE"
if [ "X${BRANCH_OVERRIDE}" != "X" ]; then
BRANCH=${BRANCH_OVERRIDE}
RELEASE="${REVISION}-${BRANCH}"

I'm rebuilding now and will post the results later.

I was using cvsup8.us.freebsd.org as the host. I don't know if it's a problem with that particular host or if it was something on my computer.

I now have 6.0-RELEASE installed. Case closed.
