hi kris, i was in the process of upgrading my kernel from 5.0 Release to 5.2 (on my laptop) and it won't boot. my boss gave me these instructions:
#cd /usr/ports/net/cvsup-without-gui && make all install clean #cp /usr/share/examples/cvsup/stable-supfile /etc/stable-supfile change default host -> cvsup10 or cvsup13 #rm -rf /usr/src #cvsup -g -L 2 /etc/stable-supfile #cd /usr/src && make world #make buildkernel KERNCONF=GENERIC #make installkernel KERNCONF=GENERIC #reboot when it boots up, wait for it to pause and press ESC "boot -s" ---->>this is where it stops<<----- #cd /usr #fsck -p #mount -u / #mount -a #cd /usr/src #adjkerntz -i #mergemaster -p #make installworld #mergemaster press "yes" and press "i" whenever it prompted you repeat ur steps #mergemaster -p try to press "no" if there is a yes/no something just press the letter "i" delete what is left of /var/tmp/temproot #reboot when it stops up, the messages from the boot script end like this: mounting root from ufs:/dev/ad0s2a pccard: card inserted, slot 1 pccard: card removed, slot 1 pccard: card inserted, slot 1 i traced the problem to the pcic device(pc card duh!) and i want to disable it. How can i do this? i tried unset but cant get it to work. tried unset pcic0 unset hints.pcic unset pcic1 (although it was disabled na) also i tried unload boot kernel.old that didnt work. i got to this point after TONS of reboots and searching thru man pages on the devices show() says. hope you can help! =) rommel > > 5.0 is by now very old; you should try a modern release. 5.2.1 is due > out soon, so you might like to wait for that. > > Kris _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
