Subject:   Troubles upgrading from 6.3 to 7
Message-ID:  <>

Next in thread | Raw E-Mail | Index | Archive | Help

I am new to bsd. I'm trying to upgrade from 6.3 Release to the latest  
stable 7.

I created the following csup file

*default base=/var/db
*default prefix=/usr
*default release=cvs tag=RELENG_7
*default delete use-rel-suffix
*default compress

I then used csup to get all the source files. I cd'd to /usr/scr and  
tried to run make buildworld and after 15-20 min get this error.

I have tried cleaning up with

# chflags -R noschg /usr/obj/usr
# rm -rf /usr/obj/usr
# cd /usr/src
# make cleandir
# make cleandir

Still I get the error.

mv -f term.h
cc -o make_keys -O2 -fno-strict-aliasing -pipe  -I. -I/usr/obj/usr/src/ 
lib/ncurses/ncurses/../ncurses -I/usr/src/lib/ncurses/ncurses/../
