I am running a power 3 (type 7044-170) uniprocessor machine and have a
vanilla 2.6.7 kernel built on it. However, when I boot the kernel, I get
the following message and the system hangs :
OF stdout is    : /pci at fef00000/isa at b/serial at i3f8

I am using a default config file with 'module support' not enabled. This
happens also with a 2.6.7 ameslab kernel as well as a 2.6.8-rc2 vanilla
kernel. Please suggest on how to work around this.

Thanks and Regards,
