In fact I want to test some application based on libsdl-perl from experimental (the one I uploaded a few weeks ago). For this, I'd rather use Debian/sid to avoid backporting lots of stuff. Hence I don't want to experiment on a too old kernel lest I run into trouble because of mismatch between recent user space in sid and old kernel. So a vanilla kernel is good enough, I don't need performance (well I hope not, although SDL was slugggish through qemu-arm-static :-/ ) > the boot is in quiet mode and there's no command line in your mail but I > assume that you're trying to boot on pata and that the kernel just > panic'ed.

I was booting from a SD card following the instructions there: http://wiki.debian.org/EfikaMX The kernel command is: setenv bootargs console=ttymxc0,115200 root=/dev/mmcblk0p2 rootwait rw quiet splash; oh right, I did not see the quiet command when I cut'n'pasted that from efika's boot script. I should probably get rid of the splash stuff also. Thanks for the tip.
