It sounds like your world and kernel are out of sync. Have you actually installed the new world yet, or are you testing the new kernel with the old world? If it is the latter, then that is the reason for ps and top not working. Some programs, ps and top in particular, do not work correctly if the world and kernel are not in sync; the error messages you report are typical for such a case. -- <Insert your favourite quote here.> Erik Trulsson [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
