Hi - I've just attempted to upgrade from 4.4 to 4.8 using the 'Upgrade' option within sysinstal and now I can't get the machine to offer me a logon prompt. I was hoping I could get suggestions about what to do next.
During the install everything was going fine until during ... "Extracting info into / directory" ... I got a dialog "Write Failure on Transfer" and at the bottom of the screen it read /mnt/usr:write failed, file system is full. I then got the same error message several more times substituting 'info' with 'crypto';'krb4','krb5','ports'. I then got a message saying something about 'resurrecting' (went by too fast to see). Clearly the upgrade was trying to reuse my old /etc which was good only it then came up with a series of error messages "Unable to resurrect your old /etc/services", I then got the same message several more times substituting "services" with "spwd.db","ssh","ttys". Finally I got a message which said that everything had turned out fine ... I think we can discount that ! Anyway I then allowed the machine to boot and the boot sequence looked more or less normal but it ended by displaying the date and time but no logon prompt ! Now at a bit of a loss to know how to retrieve the situation. Anyone got any suggestions ? Thanks Richard Shea. _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
