this morning I started with git pull.
As I did not wanted to spend the time for compiling I changed some lines 
in the driver vt6655. This driver is blacklisted on my system. So it is 
not loaded on start. I thought that even when there is an error in my 
changes that this would not influence the build of the kernel at all. 
But that was wrong. I had build a broken kernel.

After some time I recognized the change and rewind it. Then I recompiled 
without any changes.

Now it works.

Sorry for disturbance...

Bye Philipp
