I am running a 4.7 stable machine on a p1 120. With 16meg of ram. ITs
function is a secondary DNS server.

IT has been running very stable until this weekend. The machine froze for
some or other reason. Upon reboot, i was told it couldnt FSCK the drives and
I had to do it manually. Okay, cool, fine, no problem, did it manually, and
got it to boot. Now when i login and try and type something, these are the
errors im getting:

[root at dns] ~ # ps -ax
ps: proc size mismatch (27664 total, 1056 chunks)
[root at dns] ~ #

[root at dns] ~ # killall -HUP named

userland out of sync with kernel, recompile libkvm etc

:17 SAST 2003    root at dns.domainnamehere:/usr/src/sys/compile/DNS i386
[root at dns] ~ #

Any ideas anyone ? Do i need to format and reload ? What can i do to help


P.S. Oh, i was doing a buildworld when i froze!
