Hi,

This is something I've never seen before. I built gentoo-sources-4.6 the day it hit the tree using my usual procedure of dropping in the previous .config (4.5.0 in my case), doing "make oldconfig" and guessing my way through the new choices, then make (with ccache and distcc*) && make modules_install.

On reboot, the screen froze at grub2 "Booting kernel 4.6.0-gentoo..." requiring a hard poweroff and booting back to the old kernel.

I've never seen a kernel fail at such an early point. Can anyone advise how to debug?

[* I know these two tools can cause problems and they certainly have done for me with plenty of ebuilds over the years, but they've never caused trouble with a kernel build before. I will however try a rebuild without them.]

UPDATE: I started from scratch, re-did the make oldconfig in case I had made any obvious mistakes (didn't seem like it) and rebuilt without distcc or ccache, and the result is the same. Not sure how I can report a bug with "just doesn't boot at all" and no further info ... what else can I do?
