(reiterating my original email for clarification)
# cd /usr/src
# make buildworld
# make buildkernel
# make installkernel
After rebooting into single user mode:
# fsck -p
# mount -u /
# mount -a -t ufs
# swapon -a
# adjkerntz -i
# cd /usr/src (I forgot to list this last time around)
# mergemaster -p
# make installworld
No errors reported during any of these steps, and each step appears to
complete like it's doing exactly what it's supposed to.
Can you see any steps I missed or overlooked? Any advice on how to
determine where something might have gone wrong? All of a sudden I'm
having this feeling that something might be broken somewhere...
