I'm trying to debug some panics on my system, and the section in the handbook that goes over kernel debugging points to /usr/obj/usr/src/sys/KERNEL as the location of kernel.debug. But I don't have this file there. I only have 'kernel'. There is another section in the faq, that addresses getting a kernel.debug by using the 'old method' of recompiling the kernel. It's the one that involves using /usr/sbin/config, make depend, make, make install, which I don't even think is covered in the current handbook anymore. Is this section of the faq out of date? (here's the link http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/faq/advanced.html#KERNEL-PANIC-TROUBLESHOOTING )
I've obtained a vmcore file, and now I just need kernel.debug. Is there a way to get this file using the new make procedure for kernels? Can I just use the 'kernel' file, or is there a difference between 'kernel' and 'kernel.debug'?
