    Updating freebsd shell | fernape | (1)
    freebsd-update is one of the ways available to update your FreeBSD system. In the simplest form, you can use it this way: % freebsd-update fetch % freebsd-update install These two commands above, fetch and install updates for your release. freebsd-update can also perform a rollback, be scheduled to fetch updates automatically and used to fetch new packages from a different release. freebsd-update's behaviour is ruled by the /etc/freebsd-update.conf. You can specify which components you want to be monitored by freebsd-update (base system, kernel, sources...) Though BSDs systems can be tough, this is an example of how easy things can turn out from time to time :)
