'Morning Adam, 

I've added to the linux26.cfg the kernel option earlyprintk=keep (before
there were earlyprintk=yes),
but the output is the same..

How can I ignore the ORe server? I mean, how to have a L4Linux without this
server loaded..
Isn't there a kernel binary without ORe to download? Remember that I have
the OpenTC version..

Thanks for the help, Massimo.
