Cntl-c'd it since the installkernel/installworld did the upgrade... so something was fixed. Could probably comtinue with the MAKEOBJDIRPREFIX buildworld if I was sure (doubly sure) how to install from the "different" location to the "usual" one... without a hitch. So that may come later this year... unless something else breaks the specific build environment which caused this thread, which appears SOLVED... _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
