RE: [parisc-linux] NIC & "searching for devices"


	2.4.27-32-smp hangs on boot on my J6000 in serial console mode with
"Searching for devices" message. The only way I've found out of this is to
install a vidoe card, connect to a monitor and install a usb keyboard, type
in pa con SERIAL_1, complete the boot and then you are up in serial mode
after the boot. Then you can symlink back to 2.4.26 and reboot in serial
console mode.

I've updated last 2.4.27 release to be built against recent
kernel-source (in 2.4.27-3), so I suppose it has less vulnerabilities
than previous versions. Still, 2.4 is definitely a dead end.
