The kernel, thanks! I found another kernel, 4.2, which does not show this
problem. I also tried the official debian 4.3 one, how do I tell bootstrap
to use the initrd? It would be nice if it were easier to pick between
different kernels on the atari, other than using separate directories for
the kernel, the bootloader, the bootargs, the initrd...

After rebooting I still have to activate the lvs partitions, no idea what
sets them offline. Maybe after the next reboot everything will have
Adrian: installing on a different disk is a good idea, do you remember the
install session a year ago? I find ataris a bit tricky, and I don't have too
many (working) 2.5 IDE disks lying around. However, the disk seems to have
recovered mostly. Maybe the crash only destroyed the hddriver installation.
I could fix that, so I can boot properly again. The Ethernat also works,
only it does not accept the route I have set, I have to add that manually?
Seems my m68k skills have become a bit rusty, if I can figure out why the
swap partition has been activated but does not show up in free, I may be
able to start a buildd again.
