Hello, ok first of i use gentoo on my desktop but my server is FreeBSD.
I am comfortable in gentoo updating system, building custom kernels etc.
I am looking to update my freebsd server, but the more i read the more i get confused?
There seems to be some many ways and tools for doing this when i am used to doing emerge -uDp world
The server was originally built with minimal install, then /etc/make.conf including setting CPU type.
custom cvsup was used, really just changed to local mirror.
a custom kernel was used and system was rebuilt with 'make world'
Now i am looking some different type of updates.
2, Whole system
3, version update ie 6.2 > 6.3
Main concern is the first two!
Reading through docs it seems csup -L 2 is now preferred to cvsup -L 2 though if read things correctly portsnap does the same thing with
But what is best way to update the system? should i do 'make world' again?
or use one of the many apps such as
freebsd-update (though believe this only for binary updates)
The other problem is that i have use Hsphere Hosting CP installed on server which seems to cause issues!
doing portmaster -L give me list of updates some which are system some of which are hsphere.
Here is last few to give you an idea.

I can just make list of required system updates and use portupgrade app1 app2 etc but this seems long winded and un-necessary ?
Sorry for long post but any pointers would really help?
