-v please. ;-) I am s390 agnostic, I would need something like "at the
hercules console type in the exact string when X happens"

BTW I have been unable to complete installations with stable images
either. - The virtual machine just hangs at some point during the
unpack phase. Symptoms like a hardware/heating or memory problem. I
have never experienced anything like this in other circumstances but
hercules generates a rather peculiar workload (100% CPU for a long
time). Or is this related to AMD64 kernel with i386 userland?
