So how should I fix this?

Thank you,
Mark Stout
cd /usr/src
make cleanworld
mergemaster -p
make buildworld
make buildkernel
make installkernel

cd /usr/src
make installworld
mergemaster -iU

You are done. :)

The *correct* procedure is described in:


and even more detailed at:

Following the tasks in Rebuilding “world” in the handbook I removed the /usr/obj directory and did a buildworld. When tryinmg to compile the kernel its failing on unknown option "MD5". Commenting that out it fails on the line above MD5, options LKM. What's happening here? These two options papear in the LINT file. I can't find anything that explains why this would happen.

A follow-up to my last email.  I copied GENERIC to RADIUS2 and symlinked to 
/root/kernel.  Then added the various LINT options.

I started commenting out what is failing when I try to compile a new kernel.  
All are from the LINT file.  Is MD5 a default that does not need to be 
specifically added?  What about ICMP_BANDLIM?  And support for IDE drives. Are 
these already handed elsewhere in GENERIC?

# These all failed as unknown options:
unknown option "MD5"
unknown option "LKM"
unknown option "CD9660_ROOTDELAY"
unknown option "NSWAPDEV"
unknown option "TCP_COMPAT_42"
unknown option "ICMP_BANDLIM"  (found in Handbook in Chapter 14 Securing 

# Do not understand why these are fialing
config: Error: device "acd0" is unknown
config: Error: device "wfd0" is unknown
config: Error: device "wst0" is unknown

# This failed as a syntax error
controller      wdc0    at isa? port "IO_WD1" bio irq 14

Do you really need those options? GENERIC is sufficient for production use. Try running it first and see how it goes. I'd recommend adding/tweaking things only if you understand the outcome and necessity of them.
