Btw, yes I know that it might (or will) brake currently existing apps, I have to save the /etc/fstab /etc/master.passwd files etc.
I'm just wondering if I end up with a system that can boot the old filesystem and sshd will run so I can recompile all the ports on the machine in the new architecture. OT: I've been trying to search the bsd list archives, but it appears broken. I can view one page of search results, but if I click a page further, I always end up with this error: http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/mmsearch?config=freebsd-amd64;method=and;format=short;sort=score;words=update;page=2 htdig Archives Access Failure Path info. No list -2- If you want to make another attempt to access a list archive then go via the list users information page.
