I usually setup a system building script to automate

these lines...

echo "cd /usr/sys; make clean && make buildworld &&
make buildkernel" > /root/makeme; chmod u+x

then I would under rel_5 just type nice -n -20 /root/makeme
under Rel_6 this gives a "incorrectly formed number
error" more or less according the the man pages this
should be valid as they basically give this as an

nice is a csh builtin which uses a different (historic) format

(cartman)38# nice -n -20 /bin/ls
nice: Badly formed number.
(cartman)39# which nice
nice: shell built-in command.
(cartman)40# whereis nice
nice: /usr/bin/nice /usr/share/man/man1/nice.1.gz /usr/src/usr.bin/nice
(cartman)41# /usr/bin/nice -n -20 /bin/ls

{cartman}42# nice -20 /bin/ls
list of files

Did you change shells between releases?  Maybe bash uses the new format.

Then with Dump...

It seems to hit the fan with large filesystems, and
this seems new to rel_6 at least in my experience. I
can dump my root and var systems correctly but my usr
file system never works, gives errors during restore,
but comeplete the dump. I've been tarring things up
lateley, probably will keep dumping to just the root
system and tar var once I have websites on it.
Show us the error message!  And the dump command while you are at it.
