I see we're using linux_input input module to handle mouse and keyboard, which is default for i386 and usually works well. To be sure linux_input is not broken on Intel Macs, could you pleas try to boot textual, then remove from /etc/directfb the two lines disabling "keyboard" and "ps2mouse" modules and instead disable "linux_input" module only ?

it worked (so the problem must be "linux_input"), and here's the output:


ah, so linux_input strikes again! :(
Very recently a patch [1] was pushed upstream in directfb, which is supposed to fix a similar crash on ppc (#422146), again due to linux_input. If you have time, could you please try rebuilding directfb udeb with Ville's patch and rebuild a gtkminiiso for testing?

resolution for the seems wrong but that's another problem

yes, that must be another issue, we may try to track it down later too
