BETA4-4g-20101209-1544-nanobsd not working?
I grabbed two builds that were made today, loaded them to a 4GB CF card, and booted them up on my Alix board. Neither are usable at all and I'm wondering if I did something wrong or missed an announcement.
First issue is that the bootloader drops me to a prompt and I have to type "boot" to continue starting up. After that the startup scripts fail and I get a root shell:

Looks like something is crashing during the boot process. Are you sure that is a good CF card?
If you try even older snapshots, can you get one to work?
