Re: NET: Registered protocol family 2
hy you,

Quoted text here. Click to load it

this last messages are often misleading. the kernel can well do
something different but without printing it on your console.

so try to find out the real place, where your kernel hangs.
e.g. compile it with debug, printk and everything and / or start it in
qemu-arm and debug remote with gdb. or find the funktion which prints
the last message and write out your own printk() at the very end of this
