So, is con neccessary to catch printks from the linux kernel? Also, I have no
clue to how to examine IRQ allocation in linux. Another configuration issue i
notice is (in menu.lst):
module .../l4io --noirq
so we are not using irqs?

Well, that's the way output is made. Most of the output in Linux is done
via printk which needs some working console. I should probably change
the l4fb init code to l4-printfs.
Anyway, can you login to your box and see if the IRQs are properly used
(e.g. 1 for the keyboard)? Or hack it into some init-script or similar.
