Hello all,

My PC is (or rather until Sunday, WAS) running 5.2.1#9. I edited the kernel to reflect my installed hardware and add support for the PF firewall and then did a CVSup for sources - keeping to 5.2.1. This isn't the first kernel edit and upgrade I've done but as far as I recall the only changes I made were the "pfi_hooks" (or something similar - for the PF firewall) and to disable the ata keyboard - I can use USB to a KVM switch.

Here's what happened . . .

# make buildworld - finished OK
# make kernel KERNCONF=EDEN - finished OK
* PC rebooted OK
# make installworld - failed with errors part way through.
* PC failed to reboot.  It gets part way through and then reboots.
. . .
So, at the boot loader prompt:
OK unload
OK load /boot/kernel.save/kernel
OK boot kernel.save -s
. . .
#mount -a
illegal instruction. Signal 4

Unloading the kernel and booting into single user mode seems to be OK and the PATH is correct.
No command except "cd" or "pwd" works, everything fails with "illegal instruction Signal 4"

e.g. "ls" or "df" or "mount -a" all fail with "illegal instruction Signal 4"

Any ideas please.

Thanks in anticipation,
