Thanks for the pointer. Unfortunately I don't have a serial console (do
you have any idea where I can get one around paris ? ). However I'll be
courious to adapt your work in my setting. In particular it seems I'm
just not able to lunch do pivot_root and init .
this is my first attempt:
cryptsetup luksOpen /dev/md1 pvcrypt
mount /dev/qnap/system target
/sbin/pivot_root . initrd
exec init 2
an you give me a basic recipie ?
Something not related: does the beeper work ? I tried to use "beep"
but the box doesn't beep at all...
