If you have a second machine and a null modem cable then you can use the serial console output (see user manual). If not, then just look to see if anything looks "dodgy". Compare to what you can get with xm dmesg on 2.6.10.

An example of a successful boot on 2.0.5/2.6.10 (I don't have a 2.0.6 box I can easily use right now) is:

that's what I get on both of them. Obviously the numbers are slightly different but that's what looks like. I think the problem is further downstream because my impression is the scrubbing free RAM step is only a hop or two away from loading Linux kernel. And that loading process I suspect is what's going astray either through a bad reference to where the kernel is or something of that nature.

in the meantime, I will start hunting up a null modem cable and use one of my laptops for a remote console.



The result of the duopoly that currently defines "competition" is that
prices and service suck. We're the world's leader in Internet
technology - except that we're not.
