I've tried getting some old and a bit newer pre-built kernel images
working, but after bootstrap program (bootstra.tos) has loaded kernel,
initrd, and booted linux,

Side note: It's been a while ago (sometime last year) that I tried to
run the current kernel from Debian m68k on my TT. It got stuck early

the kernel. I never investigated more in detail. Maybe you're
experiencing the same issue under Hatari.

With my current Hatari LILO functionality, I get same with TT emulation, but Falcon emulation gets somewhat further (more details in another

Stefan Niestegge posted a video of booting Linux on his 90 MHz Falcon
with 14MB/512MB ST/TT RAM:

David Henderson posted then video of same on stock Falcon + FPU:
