I untarred it in /tmp/hobbit-4.0-beta6 and built it from there, using
the user ID I wanted to run it under, without copying over any of my
config files from the working server. When I ran the ./configure, it
prompted me for all the usual stuff (like fping, install location, user
id, etc.) and I entered the same settings that I used for beta5.
After that "make", then "make setup" as root. I figured that Henrik's
comment in his beta5 email about the old config files (i.e. bb-hosts)
not being written over was still in effect, so I went for it and it
didn't erase any of them.
After the setup was done, I added the HEARTBEAT variable and restarted.
To answer Bruce's question, I used make setup instead of make install
because that was the command Henrik said to use in his beta5 upgrade
instructions. Since beta6 didn't mention any particular method, I
figured it was a safe bet since I haven't done a whole lot to hobbit
that I couldn't redo in a matter of minutes. Here's the excerpt from
Upgrading from beta-4 -> beta-5: Unpack beta-5, run "configure",
"make" and "make setup". It will *not* overwrite your configuration
files (despite the warning). I recommend that you copy the new
hobbitserver.cfg and hobbitgraph.cfg files to your ~hobbit/server/etc
directory, since some settings were added.
