Turns out I didn't... and you didn't need to... emaste helped me the other night discover this.. Apparently rwatson changed this and the docs never got updated... I saw BREAK_TO_DEBUGGER, bug it was documented as being *serial* only, not syscons... I've updated NOTES and added an entry for defaults/loader.conf, but more docs need to be updated that BREAK_TO_DEBUGGER or the tunable or sysctl needs to be set before if works.. -- John-Mark Gurney Voice: +1 415 225 5579 "All that I will do, has been done, All that I have, has not." _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
