There is some vital information missing from your email. Can you
also send the yamon command's you use to start the system. Like for
instance the output below is far more complete than yours. I have put some
extra comment in between '->' and '<-' to give you an idea what is happening.

-> I have cut out the rest for brevity <-

So there can be two things:

        a) You forgot to start the loaded kernel. (this I can't tell
        from your output, so please make it more verbose)

        b) Can it be that you have disabled CONFIG_PRINTK in the kernel
        configuration???
