I'm running Debian Woody and running the kernel provided in the
user-mode-linux package I've got no problem booting.
However, patching a 2.4.20-8 kernel in order to get some (cryptographic
and networking) options needed to test some code, my boot process opens
a virtual console which is automatically and imediatly closed, and
stucks in the following message:
"Setting the System Clock using the Hardware Clock as reference..."
Compiling the same kernel in Debian Sid (after patched with the correct
patch) it boots (almost) normally - I only have one console even with
the tty's listed in /etc/securetty.
I also compiled my kernel loading the "config" file from user-mode-linux
source code and the same error occurs.
Can anyone help me discovering what am I doing wrong?
