Hi, I was just helping a friend through an install world and, as seems to be the way with his computer, we ran into problems. We were updating an early 5 series (possibly 5.0 release) to 5.2_1. We went through all the steps as outlined in UPDATING and everything seemed to be working fine right up to the install world. The first time through we ran into some problems with gencat which we fixed by copying the gencat binary from the obj directory.
Now we have run into a core dump with mtree. I have googled and come up with a reference to PR i386/30276 but this seems to be largely related to building across systems or at least changing the CPUTYPE during the build process. These errors are also quite old (April/May 2002) so it leads me to believe that there is something else up. Does anybody have ideas related to this? We would certainly appreciate any help you might offer. Limited output: mtree -deU -f /usr/src/etc/mtree/BSD.root.dist -p / pid 41399 (mtree), uid 0: exited on signal 12 (core dumped) Thanks, Simon ******************** This email communication is intended as a private communication for the sole use of the primary addressee and those individuals listed for copies in the original message.
