(sorry, don't know whether kernel problems should go to questions or hackers, or both)..

This has been a long-standing problem of mine, but I always ignored it hoping it would go away on its own with a future 6.x release, but it remains...

No matter whether I boot into safe mode or regular mode, with all kernel extensions disabled in /boot/loader.conf, I get the following panic late at boot of a fresh RELENG_6_2 kernel (with only a few services left to bring up). The 6.x kernels I've tried all build and installed cleanly without any errors...

WARNING: Device driver "

This problem does not occur within any 5.x OS for me. I would certainly like to resolve this issue now, but this sort of debugging is over my head beyond running fsck (which I've tried). Any ideas here?

Thanks in advance for your help!
