    Since 2.6.24 was getting into testing my alpha machine
    has failed to boot with it. I upgraded it to unstable version,
    but it also failed to boot.

    Messages at boot time are as follows:

    Something is wrong in this output. If I read the aboot code correctly,
    there should be a message about bss cleaning and initrd loading. It
    looks like aboot themself dies here.

    Hmm, I'm not sure but, at least, there is no message
    refering to loading initrd. It looks boot failed before
    reaching to that stage.

    I intend to provide any necessary info but don't know
    how can I get more info.

    Thanks for your follow up.
