BAh, you should have gotten a pegasos 2 with full 2.6.7 kernel and

Mmm. I cannot help you much, the only amigaone i ever saw was oopsing about
disk stuff, but this was one year ago and probably due to deffective hardware
(broken board, bad memory, bad ide cable, what else do i know ?).

Yeah, i had to fight with this kind of nonsense when i first started the
pegasos 1 patch. Finally of the mulit-megabit patch one double a4 page of
usefull patch resulted. But then, the pegasos being a chrp, it is much nearer

Err, from what kernel source you get it, and where do you get the compiled
version, not to speak about the debian installation initrd, but i guess you
still use those adapted boot-floppies.
