Thanks for the reply Lowell. I actually just found the problem that was causing this just yesterday--when I built this box I'd set up a separate filesystem for /tmp and had mounted it with various options including noexec. After I rebooted into the new kernel, I did a make installworld without /tmp being mounted, and it worked just fine. The trick is going to be to remember this the next time. ;-) Thanks again, Mike _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
