OK - my bad. This has to be done only for Etch and Sid. On those two it hangs while uncompressing the kernel (doesn't even get to the initrd). On Sarge it's working with the compressed images.

I'm well aware of that. I was just thinking I'd try the bleeding edge since Sarge didn't work too well.

Cool - now we're getting somewhere. With the latest code the shell doesn't freeze up when trying to type something when I add "init=/bin/sh" to the kernel command line for Sarge. Without it I get an "illegal instruction" somewhere in the init script. Will have to pinpoint that tomorrow. Etch and Sid still don't make it to the initrd. If I recall correctly, you get the bogl stuff when you don't supply "debian-installer/framebuffer=false" at the kernel command line (for Sarge). Are you using the StartInstall script or do you call amiboot by hand?

The illegal instruction seems to happen when executing the chroot command at the end of the init script.
