I am running it from the terminal and don't get anything there (just
the warning about it being a development version) and nothing in dmesg
or syslog.  Is there anything else I can look at?

By the way the warning says that the last stable version was 2.4.4 and
the next will be 2.6 which doesn't seem quite right.  I am building
from the tip of the 2.4 branch on git.
