I rebuilt from scratch. I had the same hang-at-booting problem, but I
hadn't built a kernel for years, so I didn't know if it was me being
stupid and out of date, or what.
I followed the instructions at
http://wiki.beyondlogic.org/index.php/GuruPlug_Building_Kernel and got
my first bootable kernel. After that, things have been going pretty
well: I can change config items, recompile, and be pretty confident the
image will boot.
I'll attach my .config, which ought to get you in the ballpark, anyway.
I'm close to having my dream Plug (heh) set up. Apache, MySQL, Postgres
and all that stuff, and the UBI filesystem is small enough to (probably)
fit on my Dockstar, too. If I can get WiFi running in AP mode, it'll be
I bet Globalscale could sell a bunch of these if they had a little more
memory, more CPU speed, and a spot to plug in a 2.5" SATA drive. Or
even just a spot to clip a 2.5" drive on, with a USB/SATA adapter. I'm
going to have to duct-tape my SSD to the plug so it doesn't just dangle
off on the floor.
