Did so. This ends with:
aba@phrixos:~$ sudo modprobe rtc-cmos
FATAL: Error inserting rtc_cmos (/lib/modules/2.6.34-rc6aba3/kernel/drivers/rtc/rtc-cmos.ko): No such device
Anything else I should do or check?

I noticed it's almost the same on the lemote 2e board here: as soon as
I need to drop into pmon, I first need to execute "setvga 0" inside of
pmon. After that, everything works.
