Sorry, expressed it a bit faulty... nothing in this case means it returns to prompt
awaiting the next command

No way to flash the device? They must be joking? On the other hand: If I would like to deter hacking attempts I would probably tell you the same. haha

haha.

on the other hand: which reason do they have to prevent us beta testers from testing it. I think they'd rather like to know now which holes exist then to learn about it the moment the drm is broken by someone getting root access.

And who knows, maybe some people from the board manage to create some interesting alternative application.

now the listening netcat blocks the iliad boot process. And i can't use netcat because the network interface is down.

damn.

now i'll be the one to figure out how friendly the iRex user support is. :\
Moral: always set-up an abort time.

On the other hand, I think there is some internal recovery method. Yesterday I installed xrvt. It worked (no typeface, but it was working) but this morning in the restart the keyboard was not showing. Next restart it was, but, surprise, it seems the installed packages have dissapeared. So it seems that it has refreshed from the original.

So they did the right option. Really it was a needed thing.

Has the sshd package been removed? Because if it is not there, we can get it from the backup of 2.4.

BTW, would do you mind to annotate yourself in the "first" list in the users wikipage?
