I've recently cleaned up and updated my sources, saving some changes
I made elsewhere. I performed a buildworld, installworld, etc. yesterday
night with no problems.
When I rebuilt my kernel, after having collected the appropriate hints
for the system and modified my kernel configuration file appropriately, I
had some trouble booting it. The loader would load the kernel into memory
but when it was time to `boot' it, I was not able to see anything on the
console, this includes the initial copyright message. Furthermore, my
keyboard was unresponsive. However, I could tell that the kernel was
booting nonetheless (even though I could not see it), judging by the hard
disk drives' activity (and upon checking /var/log/messages after I booted
with my previously saved kernel).
I then decided to rebuild the kernel with the hints statically compiled
in, and this worked fine, and the kernel booted properly. Note that I did
not use any notable optimisation flag during the build, and that this is
all on i386 architecture.
However, I decided to build a kernel with profiling support this morning
(config -p KERNEL, etc.), and I left the hints compiled in statically.
The kernel built fine, but when it came time to boot it, again, no
response from keyboard, nothing at the console. This time though, the
kernel wasn't even booting.
Has anybody noticed/tried this recently? Am I forgetting something?
