No boot messages after upgrading to 7.0-BETA2

Recently I upgraded my FreeBSD 6.2 system to 7.0-BETA2 using cvsup and the 
following howto, except that what I first did was a `pkg_delete -a':

Everything went OK, except that, after the second reboot, now I can see:

- no system messages (what I usually see in dmesg),
- no rc messages (about daemons startup),
- no general syslog messages (like using command 'su').

It's like I've lost the default tty or something, because after the boot 
process finishes, I can still log in, KDM starts up fine, etc.

How can I fix this?

FreeBSD localhost.localdomain 7.0-BETA2 FreeBSD 7.0-BETA2 #7: Fri Nov  9

I used the GENERIC configuration with the only difference that I added `device 
atapicam' for kbd.

Also, I'm not sure whether I should enable SMP for my CPU, which is Intel(R) 
Celeron(R) D 3.20GHz.

Thanks in advance.
