failed. usage message..
then cd /usr/src; make installwerld also failed.
it said "required audit group is missing.. see /usr/src/UPDATING"
i am going to reboot into single user mode and follow these instructions
To rebuild everything and install it on the current system.
# Note: sometimes if you are running current you gotta do more
# is listed here if you are upgrading from a really old current.
<make sure you have good level 0 dumps>
make kernel KERNCONF=YOUR_KERNEL_HERE
<reboot in single user> 
mergemaster -p 
that failed. mergemaster -p complained that /var/tmp/temproot was a read
i tried a couple of options either involving deleting it or using it but
i don't know what to do now.
You did not fsck and mount in single-user mode. After fsck -p ; mount -a ;
su - you will be able to use mergemaster and do installworld.
okay i followed the directions better with
fsck -p; mount -a; su -
they didn't seem to do anything so i wasn't tripping. fsck -p looked like
stuff that happened on
