Still having the same problem. Anyone have a more recent vmlinux kernel?
Does anyone have a sample of what this boot output looks like when it

BTW I have mounted my linux dev directory on another linux machine and
was able to write to the console device. Also was able to create new
device files in the mounted directory and use those as well.

I'm pretty stuck here. Any help would be appreciated.


Option? 5
