Yes, tty2 problem is at stage2. I have considered trying with bash, a
static bash and ash shells but to no avail. Is there any need for a udev
filesystem over devfs filesystem for /dev ? i am presuming as No, but
does it?
I am currently looking into the init code. So i should try to put in
more details.

I see that there is something called a build-locale-archive trying to be
used from anaconda. My distro does not have such a locale archive.

What exactly is anaconda trying to get from locales? where does it look
for for and what comprises of a correct locale/locale archive in terms
of anaconda? maybe i can hack out little details of it?

But why does anaconda's gui mode exit abruptly? Any package
dependencies? How can i debug this problem?

Only if i could get tty2 to work, which would make things much simpler.

Still hoping for more ;)
