Hello, Aaahhh...no. You are leaving out steps. To clarify, in /usr/src, do this: make buildworld make buildkernel KERNCONF=WHATEVER (your edited conf file) make installkernel KERNCONF=WHATEVER <reboot into single user mode> mergemaster -p make installworld mergemaster <reboot> See http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/kernelconfig-building.html (URL may have wrapped) just to be sure you haven't forgotten anything. A couple of notes: The supfile you are using does NOT update your ports. Speaking of which, using a refuse file is not "recommended" because <mind a blank here, you get an error about something>. The kernel name doesn't really matter if you do not swap kernels between machines and use different names (e.g. KERN1, KERN2) so you know which one you're running. Finally, I like to use script(1) to write a file to /var when I do builds so I can go back and actually read the WARNING: messages that whiz by and scare the bejesus out of me at 4:00 AM. __________________________________ Do you Yahoo!?
