This is driving me insane. I put my kernel into /usr/src/sys/amd64/conf/
and made a backup of it in /root/kernels. The link from
/usr/src/sys/amd64/conf was removed before I built the kernel yet
The firewall still does not load and the output of 'uname -i' is
Does anyone have an idea of how I could install my kernel? When I
look at the ascii spray it seems like it is actually building my
custom kernel. When I install it with 'make installkernel
KERNCONF=THIS', reboot and it turns out GENERIC.
