Kernel boot problem when moving from the dev board

We are changing our 9M 2443 from WinCE to Linux. I have went through the kernel settings removing drivers for stuff we do not use (TFT, hssd, USB). the kernel stiif boots fine on the dev board but on our host it hangs… here are the boot messages, maybe someone else has run into this situation…

What development board are you referring to?

It work fine on the DIGI development board (ConnectCore 9M 2443 Digi JumpStart Kit)
When moving to ours it hangs. From googling it semms the message is IPV6 related and recursive call to loading the module (Even though not enabled in the kernel). I have made a kernel with modules disabled and will try it tomorrow, I don’t believe we have much need for that feature anyway.

A new end with modules disabled… Still looking
