-}# pc-updatemanager install fbsd-10.0-RELEASE

# make install
cp -f pc-updatemanager /usr/local/bin/
cp -f etcmerge /usr/local/share/pcbsd/pc-updatemanager/
chmod 755 /usr/local/bin/pc-updatemanager
cp -f -R conf /usr/local/share/pcbsd/pc-updatemanager/
# pc-updatemanager install fbsd-10.0-RELEASE

Major update staged!
Please reboot the system for the updater to continue.

And the machine is up on 10.0!
