A kernel reconfig and rebuild, a bit of automagic from 'make install',
quite a few bullets in my feet, and I am now booting stably from an
'initrd' image. This indeed fixed my problem.
Except ... I had successfully moved '/tmp' out to '/usr/tmp' and
soft-linked it as '/tmp', _but_ I'm having troubles moving it back. I
think the problem is that I need some[thing|where] for the various sockets
in '/tmp' to go, and I can't seem to achieve this. The symptom is failure
to start X11.
Clues for the clueless (and toeless)?
