I think Ariff will need a verbose dmesg, not a normal dmesg.

Did you try the binary modules instead?

Do you see the same behavior when you run a stock 6.2 kernel?

Can you please add the following options to your kernel and provide a
backtrace of the kernel panic (I assume there's one):
options         KDB
options         DDB
options         GDB
options        KDB_UNATTENDED

Did you see the following in your dmesg?
WARNING: Network stack Giant-free, but aio requires Giant.
    Consider adding 'options NET_WITH_GIANT' or setting
info: [drm] Initialized radeon 1.24.0 20060225
error: [drm:pid964:radeon_do_init_cp] *ERROR* Cannot initialise DRM on
this card This card requires a new X.org DDX for 3D

I don't know what the cause of the initial problem is, but you should
take those messages into account and play a little bit around
(mpasafenet and disabling DRM in X).


So this is what it feels like to be potato salad
