Slackware ARM Pi 1 hangs random: crng init done


I follow the instructions here http://sarpi.co.uk to a t. The issue I get on rebooting my Pi 1 Slackware install is
Code:
 random: crng init done
and this is all that show up in search.

The only clue I found was to press enter at this point to get a command prompt. This did not work.

I've asked the moderators to move this post to the "Slackware - ARM" subforum where it belongs.

I'm not sure what could have caused this but I do know it's an issue some RPi users have experienced using Raspbian in the past.

Perhaps re-installing or trying another SD card might make a difference?

In my experience, that crng message, followed by nothing, indicates the kernel is trying to mount the root filesystem. If the kernel can't find it (missing driver? power issue? network problem w/ NFS root?), it may spend a lot of time waiting for a filesystem that'll never appear.
