much earlier, i was having some questions about building a new kernel, considering the documentation about the kernel rebuilding processes is not very good. (Sections 9 and 21 should be combined instead of isolated, imho.) the steps that were agreed upon were the following: 0 # (be root) 1 # cd /usr/src 2 # make buildworld 3 # make buildkernel KERNCONF=<the-file-with-your-kernel-config> 4 # make installkernel KERNCONF=<the-file-with-your-kernel-config> 5 # shutdown -r now 6 # make installworld 7 # mergemaster -i these are what i am following now. i see you are recommending i use the "traditional way." do you think it will aleviate my problems? -Sameer __________________________________________________ Do you Yahoo!?
