Does booting with 'linux nofb' help?
Same basic result. One difference is the mouse cursor is an
underscore now. I also tried noprobe, skipddc, and mem=256M. No
dice on those either.
What hardware is it probing for next?
I think I got it. 'linux nofb nousb'. Strange, there isn't a USB
port anywhere. Anywho thanks for getting me on the right track.
