So, after mucking around last night and today, I wiped my XS box and
reformatted it to remove ALL traces of 0.4 I have a clean 0.5.1
install on it. md5sum of the ISO is c0fde10b93cab3cb1a3bc3a42ceb5408
I've circumvented the realtek 8139 problem by appending irqpoll in
grub.conf That seems to work, although I have to bring up eth0
manually and issuing dhcient eth0
I still hit the bug of _sha256 as mentioned here:
Note that I am not upgrading anything. Its a clean install. I believe
the appropriate word for this is: AARGH!
I wish Fedora had LTS or "Stable" branch (it does...kinda...in
RHEL...are we allowed to say CentOS here?) but that's another thread
and another rant. It does remind me of why I don't run anything on
Anyway, this is getting in the way. Is anyone seeing this too? If so,
then its a significant barrier for 0.5.1
