    boot loader - how to make it read the config files from the prompt ("OK")?

    Is there a way to make FreeBSD's boot loader read (or re-read) the config files (like /boot/loader.conf) after you have escaped from the menu to the boot loader prompt?

    Changing Lua references

    I’ve learned Lua versions are indeed versions and installed 54 when it looks like I need 51: How do I go about locating all 54 and removing them and anything that would be left thinking of it? This includes Luasec luarocks - pretty much anything that ends in 54 and move properly to 51.

    Lua bootloader replacing forth

    Well not to cause aflame war but what are everyone's thoughts? Forth versus Lua. I am researching an old 1984 Byte magazine and I notice whole article about forth, So it is an old-timer.
