DragonFly users List (threaded) for 2006-10
Re: Distribution sets
:I have a quick question about Dfly binary sets. Most other *BSDs are
:distributed both as both ISO files and as separate tgz sets. For
:instance i can either download the NetBSD ISO installation file or I
:can download the individual "base.tgz", "etc.tgz", "comp.tgz", etc and
:decide which one to install. Does Dfly distribute the individual
:binary sets *base, userland, etc) or is it only in the form of ISO
:file? If there are binary sets available please let me know where I
:can download them.
No, we don't create binary distribution sets for the base system.
You can upgrade the base system from source very easily using:
(with the source checked out to /usr/src)
There are of course issues when upgrading from very old DragonFly
installs to very new ones, but we've tried to make that sequence
as painless as possible.
