*cough* I am not awake yet. After +editing+ rc.conf I found out that
rc_configured was =no. I must claim that that happened:
I etcupdated, and it spat out above error; I did not notice, rebooted,
and of course got PAM problems. so I tried to simply rm -Rf /etc from
the 2.0.2 install-cd, rebooted and hoped that I can then play with the
/usr/src/etc-stuff; After that, above context continued.
So for the docs:
If rc.conf fails going into Multi-user mode, maybe look after
in it. ( you can mount -t ffs /dev/wd<whatever> / to make it writeable ).
