I upgraded my system from freebsd 9.2 to 10.0 rc5.
I am using the kde desktop. Hardware:AMD phenomX4 840 on HD 4290 IGP.
For upgrade the commands followed are as given in the release anouncement.<>

As recommended, I tried to rebuild and install all applications by
using 'portmaster -f' command.
But failed , systen replied that no such command. also no man files.
tried to install pkg_add ­-r portmaster ; syatem replied that
'pkg_add' ­not found.

as this step failed. continued with the remaining instructions and
upgraded to 10.0 RC.

At this time internet connection failed, firefox not loading, Rekong
shows the message

 "cannot initiate the Http protocol"

On reboot KDE failed to load and the following messages were seen

"X Server died during start up"

"X Server for display:0 cannot be started, session disabled"

 *pkg or pkg install pkg  command gave the error message "ligarchive
.so.5 not found, required by "pkg""*

How to fix it.

Sorry , searched Hand book, but didn't got the solution.

Please help
