I'm running some tests now with a new image. Thank you for the offer. I'm sure that your image will be useful for testing if you make it available. I'll update tomorrow, this new image is behaving sanely, so far after 6 hours. We'll see how it does in 24 hours.

Time to update the image.
Get a new card and keep the old one somewhere safe.

I'm building a new build vm for students to use, can tar it up and put
it on the web if your interested ?

It'll be fedora 16 and will work in vmware player.
Should have it up by monday.
Probably around 5 -7GB download

It'll just be a matter of running bitbake so it downloads the needed
source files.

I'll post a link here when its ready to download
