Ok, what I've decided to do is to try to pull the stage3 system and build the
actual kernel with frame-buffer support while running glaurung's kernel
(which was the only binary kernel that worked for me). Actually, glaurung's
kernel is definitely not perfectly stable, I'm experiencing random hangs and
oops time to time, but I thought it would be good enough for bootstrapping.
Is it really?
Btw, the neither from Ilya's kernels did not work for me -- the recent one
boots but hangs on busybox startup. The older ones either do not boot at all
or crash during bootup.
So, is there a way out? I did not try yet the binary kernels from Kumba,
because they are built for a serial console and I don't have a cable so far.
Honestly, looking for such a cable would be the last thing on my list...
Any advises would be greatly appreciated.
