The problem had nothing to do with kernel features or setup, except for etc/fstab. I had a what I thought quick&simple md for /var: "md /var mfs rw,-s100M,noatime 0 0", but this doesn't account for all the preset stuff in /var needed to run a system. The current version looks like: # /etc/fstab # /dev/ad6s2b none swap sw 0 0 /dev/da0s1a / ufs rw,noatime 1 1 /dev/da0s1g /home ufs rw,noatime,noexec 0 0 /dev/da0s1f /usr ufs rw,noatime 0 0 md /tmp mfs rw,-s24M,noatime 0 0 md /var/run mfs rw,-s4M,noatime 0 0 md /var/log mfs rw,-s32M,noatime 0 0 # proc /proc procfs rw 0 0 Of course the directory structure had been setup with "make DESTDIR=/mnt/usb/ufs distrib-dirs distribution". -c _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
