Hi everyone.

Would doing the following be the correct way to update a system?

cvsup /usr/share/examples/cvsup/DragonFly-supfile
cd /usr
cvs -R -d /home/dcvs checkout src
cvs -R -d /home/dcvs checkout dfports
cvsup -h /usr/share/examples/cvsup/FreeBSD-ports-supfile
cd /usr/src
make buildworld
make installworld
cd /usr/src
make buildkernel KERNCONF=GENERIC
make installkernel KERNCONF=GENERIC
Also, how often should I update my system?
