Hi all

Just tried to do a 6.2->6.4 upgrade using the freebsd-update.sh script
from http://people.freebsd.org/~cperciva/freebsd-update-upgrade.tgz.

However i got really odd network things going on, main one seems to be
lo0 doesn't get it's ip-address. Other things like syslogd don't start
or indeed namedb.

The nameservers in resolv.conf don't get queried after the first
nameserver entry.

anyone seem anythign like this before. Googling doesn't provide any
obvious results.

I've restoring to 6.2 before the users come in, but any pointers would
be helpful for the near future when I try and build a test server to
do this again.
