My latest image of gnuinos beowulf (not uploaded yet) waits for a
keyboard press event during live boots.
I'm still not sure if this is related with the new version of slim. I'll
check it soon. Another possible cause might be
the non configured live-config scripts. Daniel Baumann would throw up
his arms, but i always use a very simple script for that
because it just worked for me during years.
