 Traditional Way vs New
Author: David Huffstutler

I tried making a new kernel the "Traditional Way".

(from http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/kernelconfig-building.html)

# /usr/sbin/config MYKERNEL
# cd ../../compile/MYKERNEL
# make depend
# make

After doing so I realized I can build the new kernel the "New Way".

# cd /usr/src
# make buildkernel KERNCONF=MYKERNEL
# make installkernel KERNCONF=MYKERNEL


When the Traditional "make" finished I decided to use the "New Way" of building the kernel.

I was afraid that I would have to reinstall FreeBSD since I did both steps (Traditional and New).

Expecting my box to crash upon reboot I was very surprised to find that the "New Way" build superceeded the "Traditional Way" and my box booted with the kernel changes in affect.

This is just a note letting users know that that since I didn't reboot after the changes of the "Traditional Way" that the "New Way" takes precedence.

It's not so much that it takes precedence as that it happened last.
