Default Uname still reports 7.0 release

I've just carried out a freebsd-update to 7.1, installed & rebooted. I've also updated my packages.

uname -a keeps reporting 7.0:
FreeBSD ironteeth.homeunix.net 7.0-RELEASE-p5 FreeBSD 7.0-RELEASE-p5 #1: Thu Feb 26 20:03:40 GMT 2009 max@ironteeth.home:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/ATAPICAM i386

I wasn't previously running the generic kernel if that is of use. (I had atapicam one)

Doesn't freebsd-update only work on generic kernels?

Like roddierod said, freebsd-update only works if you stick with generic kernel.

According to your uname -a you are using a custom kernel configuration so you need to perform source upgrade.

Chapter 24 Updating and Upgrading FreeBSD describes both binary and sources upgrade methods.

Thanks for the help folks - went the update from source route and everything looks fine (so far).

Even got the NVidia splash prior to KDE starting up, which suggests to me that the driver is intact(?)

Run
Code:
% kldstat
and it will show loaded modules. Nvidia's module should be there if correctly installed.

nvidia It might well function, but don't count on it! Rebuild the port now.
The same thing applies to any other kernel modules from ports (for instance, the fuse klm)

Oh and whenever you update xorg-server also rebuild the nvidia-driver port.
