Thanks for everyone's input, I feel I'm getting closer and see where my previous
thinking had gone wrong.
I tried this-
> I'd suggest just symlinking libc.so.4 to libc.so.5, nothing terrible
> should happen.
and now when booting get-
Local package initialization:fopen: No such file or directory
So I copied libc.so.4 from the 4.0 livefile cd....This gave the same message
a core dump but may be unrelated).
But the good news is now emacs, cvsup, etc. are working.
I don't know if this matters but when looking at-
implies that the -current packages on ftp.freebsd.org haven't
been built since the bump and are thus slightly out dated.
I'm thinking the snapshot came from current.freebsd.org? (SNAP5)
And when it was mentioned-
2. a 4.1.1-RELEASE libc.so.4 was being used on a 4.0-RELEASE system.
I thought I may have problems with using 4.0-RELEASE libc.so.4 on a 5.0-CURRENT
and may be better going with the symlink to libc.so.5? or look for
a 4.2-RELEASE libc.so.4 up for people to download and put in /usr/lib/compat
