> What did you download with cvsup? The system sources or the ports tree?
Here's what I have in cvsupfile (I'm fuzzy on what is actually going on). I just noticed that my default tag=RELENG_4_6. Should that be 4_7? I don't know where I got my supfile. I'm thinking it was part of the installation. *default host=cvsup12.FreeBSD.org *default base=/usr *default prefix=/usr *default release=cvs *default tag=RELENG_4_6 *default delete use-rel-suffix src-base src-bin src-contrib src-etc src-gnu src-include src-lib src-libexec src-release src-secure src-sbin src-share src-sys src-tools src-usrbin src-usrsbin *default tag=. ports-all doc-all > If you indeed downloaded the system sources with cvsup, then just > recompiling the kernel does you no good, since you'll be left with new > kernel and old userland programs, which won't work together (at least > not in usable way).
