I was playing around with one of my machines (non mission-critical - mainly used for experimenting) and I decided to try updating my sources. I am running 5.0r. I didn't have any sources on my machine (other than kernel) so I used /stand/sysinstall to add all sources. I then used cvsup with the standard-supfile to update all sources. I then did a make world, make kernel and rebooted.
When I logged back in again, root no longer had a password, my users were gone, and other settings were reset such as the ppp.conf and ttys. Other settings like X11/XF86Config were fine. Now I can slowly fix all the mixing parts and reedit conf files, but I would just like to know why most of them were reset? I think the reason it broke was because /stand/sysinstall overwrote my config files when I added all sources. Is this assumption correct? Or did I perhaps lose them at a later stage? Is there someway for this not to happen in the future?
