Re: Bad system call errors during an upgrade of -current

Looking at my history, I did:

./ -O ../obj -T ../tools tools distribution kernel=MYCONFIG modules
./ -O ../obj -T ../tools installmodules=/
cp -p /netbsd /onetbsd
cp /usr/obj/sys/arch/amd64/compile/MYCONFIG/netbsd /
shutdown -r now

/stand still has modules for both versions listed.  Went go to install
the new userland after the reboot and it never got that far since
things started crashing.  Rebooting back into onetbsd seems to work,
so I'm fairly certain that it didn't upgrade the userland yet, but
I'll double check.

On a side note, it would be really nice if the modules stuff got added
so I don't have to keep referring to my old notes every time :)
