I disabled a lot of stuff in /etc/rc.conf, and my dockstar booted with
a kernel built yesterday. Here's what I did:
(I have telnet enabled)
I then enabled sshd, ntpdate, and apache and started them with no problems.
I tried to reboot the machine, and it seems like it panicked at reboot
because it never came back.
I hard booted it and it did boot up enough for me to log in again with
an rc.conf that looks like this:
I tried to reboot it again and I think it panicked before going down
again. I wonder if update_motd really allowed this kernel to boot?
So, this is some progress. I still need to see if there is any
evidence of a problem with a serial cable at some point.
