For some reason, while booting the EeeBox, there will be something happening with the interrupts every once in a while. I can't really tell more, because when it happens I can't type anything with the USB keyboard; but the cursor is flashing at a very high rate. The thing is, when that happens, all the hardware seems to be found, except it will happen a lot slower than a normal boot, and in the end the kernel cannot mount the root file system. I've never seen it happen with a kernel older than 5.99.3, but that doesn't mean a lot, as I rarely reboot it, and I usually never have the USB keyboard in, but rather a bluetooth one.
