Subject: 1.0 Kernel Problems (long)

I've encountered a rather strange problem with a kernel compiled
from 1.0 sources. When I log in I get a 'Where are you?' message. The
terminal type is set to 'su'. Users do not show up on 'w' or 'who' and
are not associated with any tty in /dev. Does anyone have any idea
what could be going on here?

dmesg output:

Also, I'm puzzled why gvpbus is shown at startup, when it is not
included in the kernel conf file...
