FLIPS and l4linux

Hi all,

I've got a running system and some small programs running on Fiasco with  
DoPE and l4linux-2.4.
I want to investigate FLIPS to use as an extension to one of the programs  
(network capable).

The difference between compiling L4 and all its packages now is that I  
must set the parameter LINUX24_DIR to point to a directory with vanilla  
kernel code (I used 2.4.27) instead of previously when the parameter  
pointed to the L4LINUX directory (l4linux-2.4). The last one is currently  
my working setup.

Q1: Was I doing it wrong the whole time and was just lucky to get it  

Anyway the newly compiled FLIPS system starts to load as usual but as soon  
as l4linux is loaded is stops with a cursor blinking below the penguin  
with NO text (console) output. Here is the debug output:

EXT3-fs: mounted filesystem with ordered data mode.
VFS: Mounted root (ext3 filesystem) readonly.
Warning: unable to open an initial console.
simple_t| ERROR: task #13 doesn't match: client 11.03, owner 0.00
l4lx    | l4ts_create_task(): failed (server=A.00, ret=-3, exc 0)

The system is still operational and I can start my programs from the  
"doperun" terminal.

Q2:  Any suggestions on why my l4linux does not want to load anymore?
