no go for me with serial console, bug 364637 - WAS: Xserver G5 usb keyboard not loaded ...
I tried this latest netboot64 image, but I get the same behavior as with
the 2006-04-23 image, which I submitted a bug report for (bug 364637).
The boot hangs at 'Trying to im_free nonexistent area (d0000800820d7000)'
In the bug report, I included the whole console log.
Should I submit another bug report, or update bug 364637?
