yes, i knew.
but i was updating via ssh, so forget "run in single user". i also
know the exact procedure, but i upgrade hundreds of times before today
making this procedure and always went fine.

i was just wondering if was a "one at a time" upgrade failure OR if
THIS upgrade (7.2 -> 8) have this problem.

thanks all.

btw, reboot without mergmaster and system was on again. mergemaster,
reboot and it's ready.
lucky me and thanks to freebsd
