After I upgraded my FreeBSD-5.3 to FreeBSD -5.4 stable, I can't to go to 
single user mode anymore . I am getting the following error message

init: can't exec getty '/usr/libexec/getty' for port /dev/ttyv0

init: can't exec getty '/usr/libexec/getty' for port /dev/ttyv1

init: can't exec getty '/usr/libexec/getty' for port /dev/ttyv2
init: can't exec getty '/usr/libexec/getty' for port /dev/ttyv3

and the system hangs 

Any help will be apreciated
