boot behaviour change in 3.4 ?



Spotted this on the soekris mailing list.
Apparently the bootloader won't timeout properly.
I'm not sure if this needs to be fixed in documentation
or if the actual boot code has a small bug somewhere.

Add 'boot' to your /etc/boot.conf file so it looks something like this:

set tty com0
stty com0 19200
boot
