You will probably need to rebuild your kernel and reflash it. You might even need to rebuild the entire filesystem and flash it as well, but lets start with the kernel. So from where you installed gumstix-oe run 'bitbake -c rebuild gumstix-kernel'. This will build you a new uImage, which you need to flash to your gumstix. Give that a try and let us know if it does/doesn't work for you.

Hi Chris,

Thanks for the help. After your advice I have followed that list and did
again. I have Run "sudo dpkg-reconfigure dash" and answered No.  (reboot the
desktop and rebuild the image.)
After I reload the image and kernel , it still hanging at the same place.

did I missing some steps?
