Hello Julien,

I am using your release. I found a possible problem. It is a know

the netkit kernel this option:


It should fix the problem:

I cannot check myself because the file /proc/config.gz is not
existent. I suggest to enable that too.
Btw I checked here:

and looks like CONFIG_BLK_DEV_UBD_SYNC is not enabled right ?
