I don't know if this has been anyone else's experience, but I've found that building packages in OE with their dependencies and then installing them. More often than not results in a GPE system that will not allow you to log in - which is a big problem.

During the past three weeks I average I think three reflashes a day, this is getting totally ridiculous.

Basically, when building anything more than simple, the way it builds the packages is that I end up having to upgrade many other dependencies, and then it runs, but only until a reboot.

Then I get to the point where the login screen flashes briefly, it goes back to the black screen with a cursor, then a login screen flash and so on and so on.

Last thing that really pissed me off is I took the whole deploy/ipk directory from OE, made it a feed, and simply ran ipkg upgrade and voila - the same result, no way it would let me login...

Is this only me and have I set up something wrongly? Anyone else see this behavior?
