Hi peeps,

I have tried to update my src with cvsup and got stuck
because of an error while doing make installworld.

My system is an amd64 machine running freebsd 6.1 and
I have performed the steps without problems:
-make buildworld
-make buildkernel kernconf=mykkernel
-make installkernel kernconf=mykernel

Normally I would then immediately follow this sequence
with a mergemaster -p, make installworld and
mergemaster -i and then reboot.

However, this time I decided to check the handbook and
saw that it recommended to do a boot into single user
mode between the step -make installkernel
kernconf=mykernel AND the step mergemaster -p.

So I did it and when I rebooted and saw the beastie
splash screen, I hit option 4. Then I had to press
enter to get to the shell. When I did I noticed I
couldn't cd into the /usr/src directory because the
/usr/src directory was missing! 

So I rebooted again into multi-user mode and here I
tried the mergemaster -p but it failed with:

===> lib/libcom_err/doc (install)
lockf -k /usr/share/info/dir  install-info --quiet 
--defsection="Programming & development tools." 
--defentry="* libcom_err: (com_err).        A Common
Error Description Library for UNIX."
install -o root -g wheel -m 444
===> lib/libcrypt (install)
install -C -o root -g wheel -m 444   libcrypt.a
install -C -o root -g wheel -m 444   libcrypt_p.a
install -s -o root -g wheel -m 444   -fschg -S /lib
install: rename: /lib/INS@9du9 to /lib/

So, what to do now???

O yeah, I've been running my system from
securelevel=3, so maybe that has something to do with
this also.

Any help will be appreciated...

(Yes, it's Christmas eve, I know, but hey that gives
me a lot of time to check things out).


ps is this bad? Should I start evacuate all my
important files while I'm still able to?
