HOWTO index
This is a part of the new system HOWTO pages. It relates to upgrading an existing machine by installing a new system on a new disk. See the main page for other options. This is very much the way I do things, and certain aspects are not useful elsewhere.

Reinstalling ports

Current kludge, in /home/Sysconfig:
awk < installed-ports '{printf ("cd %s; %s %s %s %s %s %s %s %s\n", $7, $8, $9, $10, $11, \
$12, $13, $15, $15); }'|uniq > installports
mailme sh installports

After rebooting

This is all wrong. To be fixed.
