I was trying a 'mergemaster' as seen here but kept getting the following error: cp: /usr/src/etc/master.passwd: No such file or directory *** FATAL ERROR: Cannot copy files to the temproot environment I verified that this file indeed does not exist, then realized something else when trying to 'cd' to /usr/src/etc/: the entire /usr/src/etc/ directory doesn't exist! The only subdirectory of /usr/src/ is sys/conf/ . Have I broken something??? 'man' tells me all about 'master.passwd' but not how to regenerate it if it's missing (including encrypted info). Is the proper method as simple as the following: # cp /etc/master.passwd /usr/src/etc/master.passwd ...or should I instead do this recursively: # cp /etc/ /usr/src/etc/
