Hi Arne, thanks for your quick reply.  Yes, initscripts-openmoko still
exists in the unstable feed and initscripts likewise.  As for the
alsa-states problem, it seems I don't have an /etc/asound.state file.

I've managed to flash the
kernel but can only run it with
openmoko-fso-image-glibc-ipk--20090108-om-gta02.rootfs.jffs2 rootfs anything
later than 08/01 and I can't boot.
