Hey all,

I just upgraded via source from FreeBSD 6.0-RELEASE to FreeBSD
6.1-RELEASE-p2 on my Compaq Presario M2000 laptop.

I followed the procedures as outlined in the handbook basically:
mergemaster -p
make buildworld
make buildkernel
make installkernel
reboot to single user
mergemaster -p
make isntallworld

Basically all went well until the final reboot. I never get to the boot
menu (the loader menu that used to have the ascii beastie on it).
instead a screen appears for a split second and the laptop reboots. The
only text I can make out after trying this many times is BTX. :( It's
just up for too short a time to even try and figure out what's being
displayed. Using a 6.0-RELEASE rescue disk I copied loader.old to
loader, rebooted and the system boots fine, but now I'm using a 6.0
loader with 6.1. Any clues on what could be wrong?
