Aha!  > k. mergemaster  Are you sure temproot was made using /usr/src7 and not /usr/src? I'm pretty sure this is the culprit. The only thing different that I did, was using a cross-partition install (so that machine can boot -stable and -current) and the major diff with that is, that you get a virgin /etc/. Another minor diff is that you're recommended to recompile after booting into -current, however, I still have the auth log from the first boot and did not find any messages similar to yours, which I should have if it's a problem in -current. If you suspect the mergemaster problem: mv /usr/src /usr/src6 ln -s /usr/src7 /usr/src mergemaster -- Mel People using reply to all on lists, must think I need 2 copies. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
