Kernel panic message is:
panic: m_getzone: m_getjcl: invalid cluster type
cpuid = 0
KDB: enter: panic
same error here when i boot without a keyboard - or with a keyboard through a KVM switch.
only thing that works is having a keyboard connected directly.
tried on two different socket 775 setups (different cpu,m/b & ram) and they both had this problem.
both were 64bit 2.1 RELEASE versions.
p.s never had this problem when i used pfsense from a vm with passthrough NICs.
Use boot option 3 each time your pfSense system boots.
Or use option 8 to go to the console.
In the console type:
Press Insert on your keyboard and start typing the following text (watch for typos!):
Once done, press Escape on your keyboard and enter:
Continue by pressing Enter
Reboot pfSense using the following command. It should now default to boot with USB support.
shutdown -r now
thanks for your answer…
After a few weeks after i posted the previous message - i have restarted pfSense (with the usb keyboard connected) and i somehow had another Kernel Panic with the same message, so i guess connecting that USB keyboard wasn't really the solution.
After googling around i found that if i add
in the loader.conf should bring the system up to bootable state. And indeed it did, although i still keep the USB keyboard connected to have peace of mind.
I'll keep your proposition at hand just in case i experience the problem again.
