Post error when update to -current

Hi,

I just installed an OpenBSD 4.7.
Now i want to update it to 4.7 -current
what i ve done :
cd /usr/src ; tar zxvf src.tar.gz ; tar zxvf sys.tar.gz
cd /usr
export CVSROOT=anoncvs@anoncvs.fr.openbsd.org:/cvs
cvs -d$CVSROOT checkout -P src

cd /usr/src
cvs -d $CVSROOT up -Pd

when this last is done, i start to compile kernel :
cd /usr/src/sys/arch/i386/conf
config GENERIC
cd ../compile/GENERIC
make clean

I have this error :
rm -f eddep *bsd *bsd.gdb tags *.[io] [a-z]*.s [Ee]rrs linterrs assym.h

I don't understand why it doesn't work.
If someone can help me.
thanks

You must follow the instructions in FAQ 5 and in the Following -current FAQ.

ALWAYS start with the most recent SNAPSHOT. You failed to do this. Source upgrades to -current from any other binary version are not supported.

Please note, -current is already months beyond 4.8. If you upgrade from 4.7 to a snapshot, rather than installing a fresh snapshot, you will have to follow all of the architectural changes in the Following -current FAQ very, very carefully.

Update: The Following -current FAQ has already been updated to remove 4.7 entries; 4.8 is being released today.

Default Use snapshot

So a snapshot is to follow OpenBSD - current version. Right ?
I was on ftp://ftp.openbsd.org/pub/OpenBSD/snapshot/i386/
and there's a install48.iso, i suppose it is the 4.8 Release cd. Right ?
Where can i find src.tar.gz and sys.tar.gz for -current ?
Thanks

sigh.

The snapshots you see there are NOT 4.8-release. They are -current, as of whenever the snapshot was built. I expect 4.8 will be available for download later today.

You have misread, or failed to read FAQ 5.1. As you failed to read FAQ 5.3.

What is -current changes, on average, 50 to 100 times each day. What is -current is a constantly moving target, except for those few weeks during the development cycle when -releases are being readied.

Source code for -current is available from CVS repositories. See FAQ 5.3.3.
