thanks.. The kernel hung once at the "ABCFGHIJK"-on-a-white-screen,
but then it booted successfully twice after that. It found the console,
Farallon Ethermac card and SCSI disk, then it stopped for a few
"random: nonblocking pool is initialized"
There were no further messages after:
"systemd: Failed to mount tmpfs at /sys/fs/cgroup: No such file
I waited a while, but it never showed up on the network.
I would guess that for some reason it's hanging before running any of
the init scripts from the tarball that I downloaded earlier.
Is ADB any less stable with 4.1.18 than in Debian 3.1? (I never
noticed any issues with it there, though I also never used the mouse).
Would it make sense to try using the 4.1.18 kernel with my old Debian
3.1 filesystems? I'd have to restore them from a backup (taking a
few hours at least).
