Hi Kaiten and andre ... (... solved this ... short story is at end...
It is possible that my kernel does not work on the HS/HG. My only HG for testing is bricked and I haven't had time to solder headers and JTAG it (yet...).
Do you think its the kernel? That is my guess...
I'm wondering if indeed trying andre's kernel he mentioned, my 18.104.22.168 for LS-HG
or my 22.214.171.124
would make a difference. (I have run my LS-HG kernel in my LS1 (TTBOMK, unless I mixed something up... - maybe I misunderstood and the compatibility either doesn't exist, or is one-way?).
I am assuming you do have sda1=root, sda2=swap (turned on) and sda3=/mnt . ??
Ahhh... are your sda1&3 both of ext3 fs type? Does something look screwy in /etc/fstab?
FWIW, the Lenny image boots immediately on my LS1. (Double-checked it does work fine...)
... 4hrs later ... I remembered I have a KuroHG boxed up
... got it out... indeed it won't boot
, even w/ the kernel & that I have my Lenny-HG HomeOffice server running on... (a perfectly good/known working kernel+module set...)
I was sitting thinking of what could be wrong when output from the kernel netconsole started again... I think it may have been running checkfs or checkroot. I found this in /var/log/fsck:

It did boot for me after all ...

Kaiten, I think it is possible that your box was in an fsck run while you heard it "chuntering away". This is what I saw on my KuroHG...
try #1: Lenny-LSPPC-0.1.0.tar.gz on an old sda1 partition... : 2 minutes and it was hanging at
device-mapper: ioctl: 4.14.0-ioctl (2008-04-23) initialised: email@example.com
just like you said... I killed it
try #2 : I replaced the kernel with another one (probably identical, I now think)... and after about 5-10 minutes it finally completed booting... I thought maybe the original kernel was bad ... the log in /var/log/fsck/checkfs seemed to show that it had run fsck a few times, once unsuccessfully...
try #3 : I deleted everything from sda1, and untarred Lenny-LSPPC-0.1.0.tar.gz on sda1 again. It booted immediately no delay. After all, it seems that the kernel is a universal one, and it works as advertised/suggested.
I'm not sure if we both just happened to hit a limit on the # of boots, and that triggered fsck at bootup...
Do you think it has something to do with /var/log/fsck/* having some non-trivial contents? Or just some weirdness of a partition?
Was this caused by a fstab setting?
Also, thanks for telling me about the logs that I had forgotten to clean out... I will do that in Lenny-LSPPC-0.1.1
If there is anything that you can find that needs tweaking, please let me know, and I'll do my best to address it.
