experience updating current -> current with sysinst
After i managed to finish a -current builds a few days ago, I thought I'd
use sysinst's upgrade mode to update the system, for a change. Here are
* Digging up the sysinst binary was a bit of a pain (obj/distrib/...),
updating from a local directory was quite OK overall.
* "postinstall check" fails - nothing critical, but no way to scroll back
and see what actually fails, or to run "fix" or so.
* I ended up with a /METALOG - is that intended? Interesting enough, that
file is not in any of the created set files.
* I expected some old backups to be in /etc.OLD or so, seems that's in
* /stand didn't get new modules installed - apparently the "modules.tgz"
flag only has one file:
# tar ztf modules.tgz
This is somewhat bad, given that a modular kernel with no modules
installed will not boot.
* Thinking the system is ok, I gave it a reboot, resulting in:
root file system type: ffs
sh: Can't open /etc/rc
Enterh pathname of shell or RETURN for /bin/sh:
Now off to fix the mess...
