    > I have not been able to work around the issue of opkg-cl wanting to know what to do about overwriting dev_table when building the rootfs. I have run the script in the directory and it builds the images but, when I download and boot an image, it always stops saying 'unable to open initial console' which I think is a nice way of saying there is no initrd. Anyone care to whack me with a cluebat on this?

    A recent "fix" committed into the OE repository had the side-effect of
    breaking SlugOS builds. I have not had time to investigate a fix, but
    since at least one other person besides myself is running into this
    problem, I will raise the priority of trying to resolve this. It is
    complicated by the fact that presumably the change fixed a problem for
    someone else, so I cannot just revert their change...

    Please try the attached patch. I looked at the logs, and opkg-cl was hanging while waiting for the "user" to decide which device tables to use. I added -force-defaults to  IPKG_ARGS and the build worked. I haven't tested the image yet though. If this works, I'll send the patch to the OE list.

    Please try this version of the patch instead, the previous picked up some extra stuff.... need to work on my git-wondo.... :)
