Re: Need help to boot (was : -current hangs during boot)

  Hello FreeBSD-hackers.
 
  I had my first CVSup-ed source tre d/loaded today. It compiled correctly
  (make buildworld) and installed correctly (make installworld).

 Mistake #1 was CVSuping -CURRENT.

[...]

 NOTE #3. Your machine is probably totaly broke. And you will need to
 reinstall. This time I suggest you install 4.1.1-RELEASE and follow
 -STABLE *not* -CURRENT.

Hey pal, don't chew me up like that ... I solved the problem myself 
look, I'm not here to bother you guys, I use FreeBSD for years now, and I
always used -RELEASE, bought cds  the rest. I've also built several
ISDN-routers, all FreeBSD-based. I simply LOVE the FreeBSD project, and,
since I have some spare time, I decided to start testing -CURRENT. I also
built modified many PicoBSD installations on a floppy for custom purposes.

Even if I am "green" to many subjects, it doesn't mean I am a complete
idiot. I can learn, damnit, but I have to start with something.

Geez 

  Bye,
Wyk'00

 I had my first CVSup-ed source tre d/loaded today. It compiled correctly
 (make buildworld) and installed correctly (make installworld).
 
 But on rebooting the box, the loader fails to find a bootable kernel. It
 seems my loader.conf got trashed somewhere ... I get the list of the /
 partition, but the command
 
 load kernel
 
 gives me the "not found" message.
 

You should have build and installed a new kernel at the same time.

Try 'boot /kernel'.
