use mkinitcpio from [testing]
just tried to boot up and all i get is a blank screen with and without vesafb here is my grub config,
title Arch Linux Beyond root (hd0,3) kernel /boot/vmlinuz26beyond root=/dev/sda4 video=vesafb:ywrap,mtrr,1280x1024-24@70 ro initrd /boot/initramfs-beyond.img
Upgraded to testing today and noted klibc upgrade and mkinitcpio as well.
After download in arch, ran /sbin/lilo -v for new kernel version and mkinitcpio -g /boot/rays.img. (cpio2)
Rebooted to beyond kernel and ran mkinitcpio -g /boot/ray.img. (cpio)
Neither of the two reboots to cpio kernels rebooted...received kernel panic on both.
Suspect it is a repeat of the ext3 problem resolved earlier with klibc changes.
Prediction...This year will be a very odd year!

You might try a smaller resolution and here is my entry:
root (hd0,1) kernel /boot/vmlinuz26beyond root=/dev/hda2 video=vesafb:ywrap,mtrr,1024x768-32@60 splash=silent,theme:darch quiet console=tty1 ro initrd /boot/initramfs-beyond.img
pacman -Qf kernel26beyond kernel26beyond 2.6.16.beyond4.1-1.1
wich is just a recompile with glibc2.4/gcc4.1.1 under x86_64 had a heavy crash here today.
first i had only very poor pci performance watching dvb tv and burning dvd at the same while running boinc/seti in the background. i had lots of buffer underruns while bruning and the dvb picture was often frozen. but no error messages in any logfile. then the whole system hang up. even no ssh remote login was possible.
now i'm back with stock kernel were all is fine and pci performance is ok now again.
no idea if it is caused by the ck-patchset or from another patch. i never had such problems with old archck-kernels.
Hi, from 2 last versions (after upgrade) I can't boot into beyond , it runs splash screen and writes "initialising kernel" and hangs nothing happens. Hardware is HP nx 6110 with Centrino, any help?
I have the same problem: it's stop loading initramfs and the only way to boot is keep press a key. In log-in screen, I notice that the curson don't blink and the sustem seem stuck and slow. With the older version of beyond kernel i had non problem.
