System: NetBSD 1.6O NetBSD 1.6O (DROWSY) #1: Fri Feb 21 10:07:28 MET 2003 shark
Architecture: arm
Machine: shark

I build a new kernel for my shark (previous was from January 21) and it
crashed very early, before the copyright message, with a data access fault.

I then tried GENERIC and that worked. Checking the differences I found
that adding DIAGNOSTIC to my custom kernel made it work too.


Build a kernel without options DIAGNOSTIC and try to boot it.
(Actually I'm not sure if this is port-shark specific, but my guess would
be "no")
