It get as far as the network start up which is at the bottom of the first boot screen on any kernel for me.

Also, why has the Debian logo replaced the original??

Try the newest kernel, and regarding the logos - I just thought the debian logo was more relevant.

Just installed 2.6.31-0.dmz.7-liquorix and it boots perfectly. Was there an issue with the last one or just something on my end.

he was testing some experimental code that still needs a lot of debugging work it looks like, but which is promising.

I wish I had known that. I could have supplied some info for debugging.

All well, everything is great as usual.

The 2.6.31-0.dmz.7-liquorix now boots on my laptop (PIII 500MHZ, upgraded machine from an PII-400 base) now with a long (~ 2 minutes) pause at those lines:

Strating early crypto disks
cleaning ifupdown

After that pause the next message is:

Loading kernal modules


The kernel module I load there is pIIIcache (which I mentioned already in another thread). It had problems already with this one earlier slh-kernels before where there had been usually system freezes during boot up.

If I remember right, it was on kernels 2.6.23/24, 2.6.28/29.
It might very well be related to the acpi functions of my old (crappy ?) BIOS.

The strange thing is that when it stopped on some kernel it mostly worked again on one of the next mayor kernelversions.

For example it worked perfectly on daments 2.6.30 series, stopped working on the first 2.6.31 kernels (or maybe I did not wait long enough (??)) and now with 2.6.31-07 it works again with that pause on bootup.
Looks like the issue is nearly fixed :-)

Hmm, that's interesting. If you want to try the 2.6.30 series, they can be found in the past branch of my repository.

@damentz:
I still have your 2.6.30-5 version parallel installed which runs perfectly. . I always keep the last working kernels at hand, especially when a new mayour release comes out.
