    you didn't even seem it worthwile to copy the error messages you are
    seeing, currently nothings indicated that this reports are correlated.

    try downgrading busybox to testing and regenerate initramfs?!

  3. Bug#473075: No /dev/disk/

    OK, here with all the latest packages on my K7 today,
    there are bad days and there are good days.

    On the good days a good kernel gets installed and all is well.
    On the bad days one installs a bad kernel which will fail at boot.

    The bad installation makes a kernel that:

    *Will have no /dev/disk/
    meaning that /etc/fstab must have all /dev/hd* entries instead.

    *Doesn't know about USB Flash cards.

    *Makes these weird lilo messages:

    # uname -a
    Linux jidanni1 2.6.24-1-686 #1 SMP Thu Mar 27 17:45:04 UTC 2008 i686 GNU/Linux
    # lilo
    /proc/misc: No entry for device-mapper found
    Is device-mapper driver missing from kernel?
    /dev/mapper/control: open failed: No such device
    Failure to communicate with kernel device-mapper driver.
    /proc/misc: No entry for device-mapper found
    Is device-mapper driver missing from kernel?
    /dev/mapper/control: open failed: No such device
    Failure to communicate with kernel device-mapper driver.
    Incompatible libdevmapper 1.02.24 (2007-12-20)(compat) and kernel driver
    Added 2.6.24-1-686 *
    Added 2.6.22-3-k7

    No, downgrading libdevmapper didn't help. Anyway, upon reboot all was
    well.
