arrgh ....

aufs was compiled as module, but it seems, that the module can't load. "modprobe aufs" does nothing and /proc/filesystems doesn't show aufs. So I recompiled the kernel with aufs inside. Without boot=live, I can see aufs in /proc/filesystems. But with ...:

what for a hell ...

I can say, it does a bit more, than before (just a few lines, with raid, partitions etc. ...).

the NFS mount was also done, what I can see from the fai server, but this was also working, before I recompiled the kernel. How can I debug this problem? I changed "/init" with "#!/bin/sh -x", but I don't get any messages on the screen.

So, whatever going from, it happens after the NFS mount.
