Not in the MAIN branch

In which console do you want get the debug info? in the host side or Atari side?

Most of those messages come from modules that have being compiled with
some debug info, not from the kernel.

If you want debug messages in an Aranym kernel you should compile it
yourself from the CVS

Go to the directory "sys" in the source tree and look for the file

Look for this inside the file:

ifeq ($(kernel),ara)
MINT = mintara.prg
CPU  = 020-60
MODULEDIRS = xfs/hostfs

and add -DDEBUG_INFO in the KERNELDEFS line

Compile a new kernel with "make ara" and you will have an Aranym
kernel with debug info that would be shown in the host console.

Choose the debug level from the init menu when you are loading the kernel.

I hope it helps.
