Re: No keyboard with current Re: upgrading distribution

Running a -STABLE kernel with an -CURRENT userland is a bad idea. As a
matter of fact, running a kernel older than your userland is surely
asking for trouble. This doesn't hold the other way round (usually),
that's why you first upgrade your kernel and then your userland. FYI:

Well, I was only trying this because the -CURRENT kernel was not working; I couldn't use the keyboard. I upgraded both the kernel and userland toether by putting the CF into an i386 NetBSD machine.

postinstall fixes failed: defaults gid uid x11

These fixes failed, so your system isn't quite up-to-date. Usually
re-running postinstall with the failed fixes does the trick. If not, you
should be able to do these fixes manually (i.e. making the missing
directory, adding the missing groups/users, moving the x11 files, etc.)

Well, it was probably not finding th esource files. I gave it a source directory on an NFS server that had etc.tgz and xetc.tgz extracted into it. I bet these files were somewhere else. Since I installed all the other sets, can I just run postinstall again using / as the source directory, or is it still going to need the xetc.tgz files at the same time?

This is a small problem, though. My main problem is no keyboard support with the -CURRENT kernel. Unless I can get this repaired, I'll have to reload my backup of the old system.
