No, it's definitely RELENG_7...and even if you used the wrong case all you'd do is delete everything in /usr/src Really the only way to end up with 8.0-CURRENT is to build from HEAD, which means somehow /usr/src got populated, whether with a supfile with . in it or what is impossible to say. Regardless, there's no real supported downgrade procedure. It's probably possible, but you are in wizard territory. -- Thanks, Josh Paetzel PGP: 8A48 EF36 5E9F 4EDA 5A8C 11B4 26F9 01F1 27AF AECB
