Anyone got 2.6.x to boot?

I've recreated the initrd but still no joy ... so could do with some ideas ;)

ps Using todays cvs for 2.6 kernel at xbox-linux & gentoox pro.

edit: New cromwell version did the trick! oh, and removed the initrd ;)

The guys that I've spoken to in xbox-linux.org irc, already have 2.6.6 running ....

If we can make some inroads into getting it to work on gentoox, then maybe that'll help shallax support it

Also, I personally feel it should be in portage, as per mainstream gentoo, rather than magic, or at least in a portage overlay, so it would be very easy to add the ebuilds into the portage tree at a later date.
