[... restore old kernel worked; new kernel does not work after fsck ...]
So we get:
- 5.5-STABLE works well on your box
- 6.2-RELEASE stock GENERIC works fine
- 6.3-PRERELEASE failed for some reason.
So far as I am aware I have no clue why this could happen. Could you
check if you have any special configuration in your /etc/make.conf,
especially special CFLAGS? I usually simply remove my /usr/src /usr/obj
and build a new world without make.conf to make sure.
