Hmm. Okay will do (probably after the next crash, for now trying with
piixide instead of ahci and better kernel makeoptions). But RBUS, isn't
that Cardbus? I'm not using any cardbus device, can it still interfere?
"set to 3GB" you say, you mean RBUS_MIN_START=0xc0000000 (that is,
(2 ** 30) * 3)?)
Thanks so far..
