If all your mounts have the intr option (and the bg option, of course ;)
), and it's NFS-related, you should be able to send them an INT signal.

1. incremental upgrades 6.2->6.3 or 6.2->6.5

I'm running IRIX 6.2 on O2.
Is it possible to upgrade to IRIX 6.3 and/or 6.5 in an "incremental"
i.e. without a complete-reinstall of everything?  The reason is that I
want to avoid re-installing the optional and 3rd party packages that
I have installed until now.

Is there any difference between 6.3 and 6.5 in this respect?

because I don't follow this group regularly.
