At my local mirror, the Xenocara build is two days behind the base system:
Code:
-rw-r--r--    1 anonftp  wheel    57069846 Jul 11 21:30 base54.tgz
-rw-r--r--    1 anonftp  wheel    48514699 Jul 11 21:30 comp54.tgz
-rw-r--r--    1 anonftp  wheel      523960 Jul 11 21:30 etc54.tgz
-rw-r--r--    1 anonftp  wheel     2629926 Jul 11 21:30 game54.tgz
-rw-r--r--    1 anonftp  wheel     9958792 Jul 11 21:30 man54.tgz
-rw-r--r--    1 anonftp  wheel    10817007 Jul 09 11:36 xbase54.tgz

-rw-r--r--    1 anonftp  wheel    39802022 Jul 09 11:36 xfont54.tgz
-rw-r--r--    1 anonftp  wheel    26577552 Jul 09 11:36 xserv54.tgz
-rw-r--r--    1 anonftp  wheel     4476851 Jul 09 11:36 xshare54.tgz
You have three choices:
  1. Restore from backup.
  2. Wait for a Xenocara/i386 snapshot release(8) to be built.
  3. Build Xenocara (and if necessary, a Xenocara release) yourself.

Hi daemonfowl.

I think you'll have to wait.
I tried to install OpenBSD 5.4 i386, and I've got the same error than you.

I tried to find libc :
Code:
find / -name libc.*
and it found /usr/lib/libc.so.69.0

So, maybe libc.so.68.4 has been replaced by libc.so.69.0, but the library isn't implemented yet.
Wait and see...

Greetings , Teacher jggimi ! Thank you for the output !

I've 2 more questions please :
If I sysmerged only etc54.tgz , would I still have had a Xenocara issue ?
I lost my login shell .. so I have to 'xterm -ls' (although I suspect it relates to this very upgrade)

Thanks LeFrettchen .. be it so then.It won't be a waiting for godot.

This has nothing to do with sysmerge(8). That program is for merging changes to files in /etc and /var.

Your problem was caused by a "library bump." In this case, the C library had a major bump, from 68.4 to 69.0, due to asr symbol changes.

Briefly, when Xenocara was built (on June 9), the C library was still at 68.4. You upgraded from a system with an even earlier library, so you do not have 68.4 in your /usr/lib. A fresh install would have the same issue.

The library bump occurred 34 hours ago at this writing. I expect a Xenocara build to follow soon. If you are impatient, you can build it on a modern i386 machine in about an hour, if you have the source code (/usr/xenocara by default). See the man page I referenced in my post above (step 5) and also FAQ 5 for guidance on building Xenocara, if you are interested.
