Re: 2.9 hangs on boot

Well I got the new kernel home, but can't install it.

The new CD-Rom drive isn't IDE, but some proprietary interface via the sound card, I think. So I can't mount it. I was able to get networking up in single user mode, so tomorrow I'll try FTP'ing it down to the box and installing the new kernel that way.

Guess I'll make another pass commenting stuff out, since I have something to shoot for now.

Well, 2.6 MB isn't bad. My production kernels are about 1.2 MB ;-)) There's
usually lot's of stuff you can uncomment in /usr/src/sys/conf/GENERIC,
especially all the emulations if you don't need them.
