I'm trying to boot Dragonfly (1.10.1_REL) on a MacBook (1st gen). After the booting process starts it enters a loop and displays "<db>" indefinitely.

How far did it go, such as whether you saw the twirling bar, the DragonFly menu, the copyright notice, or so on. If you can get to the boot menu, please try booting with ACPI disabled to see if it changes anything. I know it's hard because our boot loader can't properly initialize the keyboard (and I see it on other OSes, too). You'll have to try rebooting until the keyboard works.

It comes until some stage of device initialization. The last thing I could see was probing of uhub or something like that.

So my guess is that the usb keyboard doesn't attach correctly and panics the kernel. ddb pops up and can't read from they console, thus leading to an endless db> output loop.

[to avoid confusion: I was standing next to Daniel when he was trying to boot]

It boots fine on MacBook Pro(core 2 duo) here, FYI.

That's very good news! Can you work with it or are there still some major problems?
