I have done that - And it seems to be working okay, i just removed the
flash card, and inserted a sata disk, just to have more speed here in the
in /etc/fstab i changed the 'dax' devices to 'da1'
and the soekris is booting, but instead of the login prompt, it just writes:
Local package initialization:.
Starting background file system checks in 60 seconds.

Its the last line i dont understand, where is my login prompt? ;)
Another thing, my brand new sata disk, clicks once i a while, and i have
never heard that before on my other hardware, is that a soekris "feature"?
