  1. Bug#472698: initramfs-tools: fails to boot with busybox 1:1.9.2-1

    Package: initramfs-tools
    Version: 0.91e
    Severity: important

    i'm not sure if this should be filed on busybox or initramfs-tools.
    maybe it should even be RC, as it can make at least some systems
    unbootable.

    when booting with two different systems (one using boot=nfs the other
    using boot=local an an lvm root) they both fail with messages saying
    various tools could not be found (mount, printf, tr, mknod and others):

    /scripts/init-top/framebuffer: line 100: mknod: not found
    /init: line 157 printf: not found

    downgrading busybox to the version in testing (1.1.3-5) and regenerating
    the initramfs images works around the problem. i'm not positive, but i
    think it was working fine with whatever version of busybox was in
    unstable on 2008-03-19.

    thanks.

    live well,
