That's the first I looked.
However messages is empty and lastlog and faillog although sizable appear with no text content. How do you see their content?

Another issue is the does not appear to be any /boot-alt folder, so I can not boot back to os303 and check from there, unless if I do it manually.
Bootpart has /bootpart/boot-versions/<version> but OFW does not see that as boot-alt.
How do you boot-alt in XO-1.5 builds?
