I'm still very new to freebsd and have run into a glitch upgrading from:

dawn# uname -a
FreeBSD dawn.brasil 4.9-PRERELEASE FreeBSD 4.9-PRERELEASE #0: Sun Sep 28 08:00:09 EDT 2003     james at dawn.brasil:/usr/src/sys/compile/LINT  i386

I ran a make buildkernel kernconf=GENERIC with out issues after cvsup to releng_5_2.

I now get the following:

dawn# make installkernel kernconf=GENERIC
cd /usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC;  MAKEOBJDIRPREFIX=/usr/obj  MACHINE_ARCH=i386  MACHINE=i386  CPUTYPE=  GROFF_BIN_PATH=/usr/obj/usr/src/i386/legacy/usr/bin  GROFF_FONT_PATH=/usr/obj/usr/src/i386/legacy/usr/share/groff_font  GROFF_TMAC_PATH=/usr/obj/usr/src/i386/legacy/usr/share/tmac PATH=/usr/obj/usr/src/i386/legacy/usr/sbin:/usr/obj/usr/src/i386/legacy/usr/bin:/usr/obj/usr/src/i386/legacy/usr/games:/usr/obj/usr/src/i386/usr/sbin:/usr/obj/usr/src/i386/usr/bin:/usr/obj/usr/src/i386/usr/games:/sbin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin  /usr/obj/usr/src/make.i386/make KERNEL=kernel install
You must set up a /boot/device.hints file first.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/src.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/src.

I'm not sure what else needs to happen, to repair it. looks like my init is at level 1 or higher but i'm not shure how to tell.
