Yes, of course. Just wanted to make sure that everything else is ok and I already had it running with 13.37 some time ago. So I gave it a test run.

I've built my own kernel now (same version like 14.0 and based on your config). I've just added the needed drivers to the kernel (USB, SCSI disk, some filesystems) so I can boot without initrd and everything is ok now.
