Re: HEADS UP: panic behaviour changed

I changed it so that the debugger is no longer automatically entered if the

It will just dump and reboot now. To enter the debugger automatically set
ddb.onpanic=1 in /etc/sysctl.conf.
There's some scope for improvement here, for example waiting a few seconds
and prompting before reboot..
What do you mean by this? Have you just changed the default of
ddb.onpanic to 0? I mean, it's not like the system necessarily entered
ddb before either. If someone manage systems remote, I would hope they
had already set ddb.onpanic appropriately before this, or otherwise they
didn't know what they were doing anyway, and changing this default will
not make them suddenly become competent.
