Alright Kristian, why don't you post your supfile, make.conf, rc.conf, 
output of uname -a, a description of what equipment your doing this 
with, what you're trying to accomplish and why, what you're doing to 
make this come about, what you expected to happen, what did happen. How 
you're taking all the advice you've been given and bending it to suit 
yourself - which, I have to tell you, IS NOT WORKING, or you would be 
singing a different tune. 

How can you take the advice that I gave you, which has worked for me 
since FreeBSD 4.4, and it doesn't work for you. What about the advice 
that others gave you that was similar to mine and should have the same 
outcome. You're obviously doing something wrong. I would think you 
would want to successfully get through at least one buildworld sequence 
before screwing with things.
