I seem to be having a reproducible error when trying to upgrade from 4.6 to

Where would be a good place to post my output, and is there any additional
information that would be helpful besides the make failure?

DragonFly 4.8 is out!


> From the release page:

"DragonFly version 4.8 brings EFI boot support in the installer,
further speed improvements in the kernel, a new NVMe driver, a new
eMMC driver, and Intel video driver updates."

The normal ISO and IMG files are available for download and install,
plus an uncompressed ISO image for those installing remotely.

If you have an existing 4.6.x system and are running a generic kernel,
the normal upgrade process will work.  Change your local /usr/src to

> cd /usr/src
> git fetch origin
> git branch DragonFly_RELEASE_4_8 origin/DragonFly_RELEASE_4_8
> git checkout DragonFly_RELEASE_4_8
> git pull

And then rebuild: (in /usr/src )

> make buildkernel
> make installkernel
> make installworld
> make upgrade

Don't forget to upgrade your existing packages.

> pkg upgrade
