config_notsc and it seems to boot up)

however weird behaviour aswell, because stops just after init...
no matter wheter i use init=/bin/bash or regular init.
it reports mounting root fs (ext2), then freeing unused kernel
mem (52k) and stops .

when i press keys i see output like it should be , so at least

with prink enabled it prints series of 'unknown scancode'

after some tries keyboard locks up completely.
