How can I update from 1.6.2 to latest devel version?
If you want the absolute bleeding edge you'll have to download the
source-code, compile and install. The handbook describes the process
quite well: leaf.dragonflybsd.org/~justin/handbook/updating.html
Actually this is much easier than it sounds, but it can take some time
to compile the world and kernel. What you do is that as root run:
# cvsup -h <host> /usr/share/examples/cvsup/DragonFly-src-supfile
where <host> is any of the mirrors offering cvsup-access from the list
at www.dragonflybsd.org's download-section.
When that is done you do
# cd /usr/src
# make buildworld
# make buildkernel
# make installkernel
# make installworld
# make upgrade
and then reboot, and you're done.
Alternatively, you could (I think) download a snapshot ISO and install
(I've never done this, so I don't know how well it works). A list of
sites from where you can download a snapshot can be found at
www.dragonflybsd.org in the download-section.
