Thank you, unfortunately 2.6.33-23-realtime amd64 results with 'ACPI:
Expecting a [Reference] package element, found type 0' and a login for
text mode. FWIW I didn't log in and tested to start x or gdm.

This is one of the kernels that stops booting with the message 'mount:
mounting none on /dev failed: No such device.'

Is your machine an AMD dual core too and is the architecture of your 64
Studio also amd64, but x86?

Perhaps it has to do with the NVIDIA graphics? Perhaps I should generate
a xorg.conf by running 'sudo X -configure' and test the vesa driver. I

The eye-catching thing regarding to 'mount: mounting none on /dev
failed: No such device.' is

# cat config-2.6.31-11-rt | grep CONFIG_DEVTMPFS
# cat config-2.6.32-23-preempt | grep CONFIG_DEVTMPFS

that there's no output for 2.6.31-11-rt.
