Hi,
Im unable to boot my workstation with the current HEAD kernel. The boot
seems to go ok up untill

uhub2: port error, restarting port 1
uhub2: port error, giving up port 1

And then it just restarts without any panic. Any advise on how to debug it?

Cheers,
Petr

This could be a tough one. Does it boot on an older ISO?

Sometimes having it boot with the console on the serial port yields
more information. boot -v might help in addition to that. If we can't
get any clues from that you could try compiling up a kernel with as
many drivers as possible removed (leaving just the console/video/disk
driver). If it is a SMP box you could try booting with a UP kernel.

I reverted back to kernel compiled on 1st of October and it works again,

so the problem came to be between yesterday and 1st of October. I'll
give boot -v and compiling the least amount of drivers a shot.

I couldn't find a smoking gun in the commit history. If possible
could you try burning and booting snapshot CDs to narrow down the
date range where the problem first began?

Ok Matt, will do and give you results.

The problem has disappeared after refetching the kernel source and make
buildworld, installworld and buildkernel,installkernel. Weird, weird...

Hmm. We're you playing around with any special options or did you
tell the system to use a different default compiler or something like
that?

#8 Updated by elekktretterr almost 8 years ago

The problem is, I did neither. I wasnt doing anything special except

trying Simon's sound patch on the latest HEAD kernel, so I restarted
with the new kernel and started having those weird reboots, then I
deleted sys, and tried without Simon's patch, had same problem. then i
tried precompiled GENERIC kernels from 10th and 20th of October and they
worked, so I deleted sys again, ran cvs up and did make and here it works.

Keep posting to a wrong mailing list this week all the time....

Or perhaps any hidden local patches?
