Just how does one > upgrade an existing source installation into a newer version release? If you are talking about minor releases like going from 0.6.4 to 0.6.5, sure, just install over. That is what I do, and it has not given me problems. I usually keep the old config.log around just to make sure I have a reasonable set of parameters to ./configure (the --enable-static --enable-shared stuff on OS X for instance, although I believe that one has been fixed.) For my clients, I usually build the native package (like sun pkg) on one machine, test it and then upgrade the others. When I upgrade the kdc'en I usually back databases and binaries up, just to be able to revert quickly. -- Måns Nilsson Systems Specialist +46 70 681 7204 cell KTHNOC +46 8 790 6518 office MN1334-RIPE How's the wife?
