error when update to -current
I just installed an OpenBSD 4.7.
Now i want to update it to 4.7 -current
what i ve done :
cd /usr/src ; tar zxvf src.tar.gz ; tar zxvf sys.tar.gz
cvs -d$CVSROOT checkout -P src
cvs -d $CVSROOT up -Pd
when this last is done, i start to compile kernel :
I have this error :
rm -f eddep *bsd *bsd.gdb tags *.[io] [a-z]*.s [Ee]rrs linterrs assym.h
I don't understand why it doesn't work.
If someone can help me.
You must follow the instructions in FAQ 5 and in the Following -current FAQ.
ALWAYS start with the most recent SNAPSHOT. You failed to do this. Source upgrades to -current from any other binary version are not supported.
Please note, -current is already months beyond 4.8. If you upgrade from 4.7 to a snapshot, rather than installing a fresh snapshot, you will have to follow all of the architectural changes in the Following -current FAQ very, very carefully.
So a snapshot is to follow OpenBSD - current version. Right ?
I was on ftp://ftp.openbsd.org/pub/OpenBSD/snapshot/i386/
and there's a install48.iso, i suppose it is the 4.8 Release cd. Right ?
Where can i find src.tar.gz and sys.tar.gz for -current ?

The snapshots you see there are NOT 4.8-release. They are -current, as of whenever the snapshot was built. I expect 4.8 will be available for download later today.
You have misread, or failed to read FAQ 5.1. As you failed to read FAQ 5.3.
What is -current changes, on average, 50 to 100 times each day. What is -current is a constantly moving target, except for those few weeks during the development cycle when -releases are being readied.
Source code for -current is available from CVS repositories. See FAQ 5.3.3.
