OK, I've read the FAQs, I've read the man pages and I'm a little uncertain.
Can someone please tell me if the following will produce the result of a
source tree that I can compile a 2.7 patch (or stable) kernel and full
patched 2.7 userland binaries from?
1) FTP srcsys.tar.gz and src.tar.gz from /pub/OpenBSD/2.7
2) Extract srcsys.tar.gz and src.tar.gz to /usr/src
3) cvs -d $CVSROOT -q up -Pd
Is that all there is to it, or do I need to specify the -rOPENBSD_2_7 tag
somewhere? If I understand correctly, I would only need to do that if I
was fetching the 2.7 source entirely via anoncvs. Since I already have the
released 2.7 code on my system (via srcsys.tar.gz and src.tar.gz) I should
just be able to use anoncvs to update my existing code to the 2.7 patch branch.
Is that correct or am I way off base? And should the commands above get me
where I want to be?
Thanks in advance,
