After -current upgrade, I forgot to update lilo before rebooting!
 
I just took the plunge and upgraded to -current.
On the way out I forgot to run lilo.

Result? My "-current" problem/question now is ....

Edit: Found the solution:
written up elsewhere so i won't give details:
use Install media, login as root, mount root directory, chroot to this, then edit lilo.conf, then run lilo, reboot!
