I just tried the new 11.04 (natty) and it works.
Seems there are some custom kernel patches from Ubuntu that are now required for
10.04 and newer to boot properly because of udev, plymouth, mountall, and
I have tried the latest development snapshot and the release version of colinux.
I'm having the same problems detailed here:
None of the Linode solutions resolve the problem.
There is a Ubuntu bug report here where lots of people with custom kernels are
having the same issues:
It's easy to reproduce the issue using this guide to create a maverick image:
I could also provide the image if needed. It's around 70MB.
so it seems the linode fixes do work it's just that
the one I was following has a typo:
dev /dev tmpfs rw 0 0
NOT devtmpfs. Everything else is correct.
