Hi Benjamin,

I've now uploaded updated cross-built bbs (build-bootstrap) isos for arm,
sparc and x86_64 (multilib) as well as my latest crystal test iso to Most notably the bbs isos now include shadow as well as
working ncurses and stone, so they can be installed and logged in to just
like x86 crystal isos. However grub hangs when doing e.g. "grub ; root
(hd0,1); setup (hd0)", so it is not included on the latest x86_64 bbs iso.
Cross-built grub, grub built natively and grub from a 32-bit build all show
the same error in qemu-system-x86_64. Maybe this problem is limited to qemu,
but for now you need an existing boot loader (like isolinux included in the
isos) to start the installed system.

Yours sincerely,
Stefan Fiedler
