I RECENTLY REPLACED MY WIRELESS CARD. NEW ONE WORKS FIND. BUT IN CHANGING CARDS IT AFFECTED THE BOOT PROCESS. DURNING BOOT I GET AS FAR AS - Local package initializartion:Starting compat5x. THEN THE SYSTEM FREEZES. THE ONLY WAY FOR ME TO CONTINUE TO BOOT UP IN TO HIT THE CTRL AND C KEYS AT THE SAME TIME. NOW WILL SOMEONE TELL ME, HOW TO I GET MY OPERATING SYSTEM BACK IN ORDER? :cry:

Do you have the compat5 package installed? Can you please show me the output of this command: pkg_info | grep compat

This is what I get when I use pkg_info | grep cpmpat

This is strange. You have this in your /etc/rc.conf:
I must admit that I'm clueless as to what might cause this.
Perhaps reinstalling compat5x might help? Try running it as root with this command first:

OK I tried /usr/local/etc/rc.d/000.compat5.xsh start. Compat5x started. I then rebooted and nothing changed. Still haning up. :cry: Please give me another idea.

compat5x appears by default on rc2 installation. I am sure it didn't appear in rc1

Do you have compat5x_enable="YES" in /etc/rc.conf? You can check it by typing less /etc/rc.conf in konsole.
Do you have ports installed? If you do, you might want to reinstall the compat5x package. First you create a backup (in your home directory for instance):
pkg_create -b compat5x-i386-22.214.171.124_5
Then you enter its port directory:
Change to root (su, and enter root password), then:
make install clean

I FOLLOWED YOUR INSTRUCTION TO THE LETTER. DEINSTALLED, THEN REEINSTALLED VIA PORTS. STILL NO CHANGE.

Then I don't know what's up ... I'm sorry. It isn't necessary the compat package either (which does nothing, just runs a command at startup, and that's it, it shouldn't wait that long) - it can be something that starts up before or after and keeps waiting for some reason. It can be something that you installed that puts a startup script in /usr/local/etc/rc.d - which needs an entry in rc.conf. I don't know ... I'm sorry.

the compat5x library IS included on RC1 and RC2. Try reinstalling the system if you can and/or reinstall compat5x.
make deinstall && make reinstall && make clean
