may I ask how exactly you did the update? As it has mentioned before, the handbook (even the german version) gives a good "routeplan" for this. In general: # cd /usr/src # make update # make buildworld buildkernel KERNCONF=GRISSOM # make installkernel KERNCONF=GRISSOM # reboot boot -s fsck and mount -a # cd /usr/src # mergemaster -p # make installworld # mergemaster # reboot (Hope that's correct from my mind, check handbook anyway.) Note that the configuration files mentioned above usually employ the "make update" command from within /usr/src. Kernel and world have to be the same version. Oh yes, and check your /boot/loader.conf if eventually a previous kernel is loaded, maybe you stored a "spare kernel" in /boot and the loader loads this, instead of /boot/kernel/kernel? Just to be sure... I mention this because I had a "spare" 6.0-GENERIC kernel saved in /boot, a setting in /boot/loader.conf for some testing, then updated the system (which affected /boot/kernel/kernel, but not /boot/kernel/kernel.GENERIC which was instead loaded). :-) -- Polytropon >From Magdeburg, Germany Happy FreeBSD user since 4.0 Andra moi ennepe, Mousa, ... _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
