that's a good hint, but I use the default debian settings and a few
bind mounts.

But I tried to start it with -F and this works???

Strange, I restarted it again without -F and it fails. Then I added
-F again and it works (beside some minor issues like no direct root
login possible on console).

Hmm, what's the difference here? Is there a must for a console in
ordert to start?

Do you have an idea, what's going wrong? 

Best regards
