Hey folks... Got a question I hope someone out there could answer. Did a couple quick searches and couldn't find one already here.
Got my I-Opener up and running the Debian 2.2r2 stoch kernel (2.2.18pre21, I think) and it worked beautifully. Grabbed the 2.4.2 kernel and tossed that on to the disk so I could get my USB working as well. I went through the config and it seemed to compile fine, but on trying to boot it, it will get to the 'Loading Linux' prompt, then seem to go nowhere after that (BIOS bootup stuff is still on the screen)
Now the odd things. With either kernel, the LILO prompt never is printed to the screen, and when 'Loading Linux' is printed for either kernel version I boot into, each letter is a different color (Kinda like a painful kid's website). When I boot into the stock kernel, in transitioning between the BIOS boot screen and the Linux boot scroll, the screen flashes 3-7 times. It doesn't do this when I try to boot the 2.4.2 kernel. I'm wondering if there's a critical display driver or something in the kernel that I didn't mark to include. Has anyone run into this before? Another oddity is that sometimes, even though the screen seems to freeze, I think it's actually booting to a point. My USB ethernet device -did- initialize once, and there are sounds coming from the hard drive.
