Build 76 is working for me also, with LB built from the latest git.
However, I'm still seeing the USB errors,
end_request: I/O error, dev sda, sector NNNNNN
for very many values of NNNNNN
The error messages always start to appear right after
Starting system message bus:
I wonder if that is significant?
I have tried two different revA boards, both behave the same.
---- Oh great. It has stopped failing now. What I did:
Logged in on VT2. (I took a long time, because of all the errors)
ps -ax; then killed the dbus-daemon (no help)
tried to kill various X-related processes, hard to tell if that helped.
commented out the "once" line (runs prefdm) at the end of /etc/inittab,
then "kill -1 1"
Then the error messages stopped.
Added ",noatime" to the / mount in /etc/fstab.
Rebooted, no errors.
Restored /etc/inittab and /etc/fstab to their former glory.
Rebooted, still no errors.
