Setting port B as the default console (in openboot) shows the same
problems as Ben's image (Warning: unable to open an initial console)

for me also, with your image.

I plan to use a cdrom connected to the X1's second ide bus (yes, it
works, it boots from it also)

I haven't such an adapter, so I think I'll wait for the builtin nic
driver. Any news on this side?

As stated before, I tried both ttyb (splitting console and LOM port as
described into the X1 manual) and ttya, which works.
And now, an interesting question: what the "-p" boot parameter is?
It's needed with Ben's kernel (or otherwise it hangs on "Booting Linux")
but not with yours.
I looked around, but it's not listed as a standard linux kernel
Last but not least... your image starts a Suse installation... not that
I don't like Suse (in fact I never used it) but I'd like to have an
image with a simple bash :)
Could someone help me in understanding how to build different boot
