Default Update via CVS

Regarding to: http://www.netbsd.org/docs/updating.html

How can I tell NetBSD to only download x86 regarding files?
Is there a way to upgrade/install updates, which is more comparable to MS Windows updates?

NetBSD is source code maintained.

That's very different than how Microsoft does it. Microsoft keeps their source code internal to their company, and only offer binary patches to their customers.

Why don't you use sysupgrade?

There is also a means to do a binary upgrade. For i386/x86_64 nyftp offers binary images that offer an upgrade option in the installer.

The 'pkgin' tool performs binary upgrades:

Upgrade keepable packages to their newer versions present in the repository. If the installed dependencies match the listed needed dependencies, don't upgrade them:

# pkgin upgrade

Upgrade all packages to their newer versions present in the repository:

# pkgin full-upgrade

But I think the OP was looking to update the OS, whereas pkgin updates pkgsrc application packages.

@all
Thx for ur answers.

@jiggimi
Sorry. I meant sth like a Programm, which recognizes the NetBSD Version and Downloads Hotfixes and other updates for this particular Version (like only updates for amd64/7.1).

@darktrym
Ill have a look at that. Does the update via cvs include updates/Hotfixes to a Version or does it only download and install the latest stable too?

@shep
Ty. I already recognized that. Wasnt quite sure whether the update by cvs includes some newer security updates.

@DaBSD & IdOp
Yep, was asking bcz of OS updating.

//OFFTOPIC
Furthermore, I want to install Drivers for my gfx-card.
I found this:
http://wiki.netbsd.org/tutorials/x11/compiz/
this:
http://netbsd.gw.com/cgi-bin/man-cgi?radeon+4
And now im a bit confused. which one is the better solution, or is it even basicly the same?

NetBSD has at least two development branches. You can use it as a service pack for a NetBSD installation. At the end of the download process you have to decide which config file you want on your system.

sysupgrade download the binary installation set and install it.

Newer versions of NetBSD doesn't need to compile modular X. I'm not sure what is the state of our radeon driver and what is latest supported generation.

Here are all branches explained http://ftp.netbsd.org/pub/NetBSD/Net...c/doc/BRANCHES

I follow netbsd-7

Branch: netbsd-7
Description: The NetBSD 7 release branch
Status: Active
Start Date: 11 Aug 2014
End Date:
Base Tag: netbsd-7-base
Maintainer: 7.0 Release Engineering <releng-7@NetBSD.org>

basically, it's the latest 7.x release + fixes. I just noticed that NetBSD got released a few day ago. Anyone in the Internet noticed that? From now on, I will follow netbsd-8.

Thanks for pointing it out, I hadn't noticed. Here's an official link about the release process, which is in beta. It might be worth a try at some point as I'm having a bunch of problems with 7.1.

Ik, that ist going totally offtopic now, but i dont want to spam the Forum with another noob-question-thread.

Is there a 32bit Subsystem for the X86 64bit release?
Like the wow on Windows64?

OK then, I probably misread the initial message

BTW, has anyone who has used sysupgrade faced that uname still shows the system's old (=pre-sysupgrade) version?

Do you tried to remove the cached files under /var/cache/sysupgrade?

No, I didn't. uname is supposed to take its output from a system call, or what?
