I updated my system by changing releng_5_4 to releng_6. During mergemaster i accidentially replaced my master.passwd whith the one from src. At the next startup there were minor problems, but I thought i got them fixed. Later, however, the system froze, and the only option was a forced reboot. I tried fsck, and there seems to be a problem with the 'var' partition. Problem is that the system freezes during fsck (single user). I had to go back to my old kernel, but i have problems with a som programs, mysql, make and a few others. I get "Segmentation fault (core dumped)" messages. The problem now is that "make" failes, so I cannot reinstall my old system on the 5.4 kernel. Using the 6.0 kernel all ports and make works, but the system suddenly freezes. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
