[SOLVED] LEDE on x86_x64 does not boot

Hi, Is LEDE expected to run on just few x86 platforms or pretty much any PC? I have just tried it on two PCs (one Intel and one AMD) and it starts booting, but the last message I see on the screen is random: nonblocking pool is initialized and I do not get to a command prompt. Am I missing some steps?

That is usually the last message of a successful boot, but you may be missing drivers (kernel modules) for your (USB?) keyboard and/ or ethernet cards.

You need to add kmod-usb-hid to use a local keyboard. It should work to log in from another computer at, unless your NIC driver is not included. Seeing eth0 start up means that your NIC is OK.

Thank you; that did the trick.
