:Is there an upgrade path from 2.2.0?
:I found a HOWTO page on the website, but that was talking about CVS..
Generally speaking the upgrade path for someone running 2.2.0 is
to download the sources and do a make buildworld/buildkernel/
Our website docs do need to be updated, as we use GIT now and
no longer use CVS. The 'man build' manual page is probably
the best resource.
/usr has a Makefile in it that gives you convenient targets for
downloading and maintaining a copy of the source. I just realized,
though, that the Makefile defaults to using the master branch,
which is the head of the development tree instead of the 2.2
branch. You would want to do a 'git checkout DragonFly_RELEASE_2_2'
after the initial download to get onto the correct branch.
