  1. Bug#482773: linux-image-2.6.25-2-amd64: bootprocess hangs after "Begin: Waiting for the root filesystem... ..."

    Package: linux-image-2.6.25-2-amd64
    Version: 2.6.25-3
    Severity: important


    Hi,
    the kernel in unstable doesn't boot for some reason. The last message it
    prints is "Begin: Waiting for root filesystem... ...". I do think that
    this has something to do with the initramfs. According to google the
    initramfs is too large to be loaded, or something.

    I've already tried to downgrade the initramfs-tools to the old
    etch-version, but that didn't change a thing.
    I've also tried to rebuild a smaller initramfs by changing
    "MODULES=most" to "MODULES=dep" in /etc/initramfs-tools/initramfs.conf
    running "update-initramfs -k 2.6.25-2-amd64 -u -v". But the bootprocess
    still hung.

    Please tell me, if you have any ideas what the problem is, or what I
    could do, to get additional informations.

    checkout http://wiki.debian.org/InitramfsDebug
    and give info according to those points.

    thanks

    I have managed to get the new kernel running. The problem has been, that
    for some reason all hda* devices become sda* devices, when I'm using the
    recent kernel.
    When I change every hda entry in the boot patameters and /etc/fstab to
    sda, the system runs fine. Additionally I made a "sudo dpkg-reconfigure
    uswsusp" to get rid of a error message.

    However, I think that there still is a problem, because I have got an
    IDE disk which is labeled as if it were SCSI, and thats at least unusual.

    According to lsmod the IDE modules have been loaded:

    squish@Blub:~$ lsmod | grep ide
    ide_pci_generic 9476 0 [permanent]
    ide_core 138160 2 ide_pci_generic,sis5513


    And I haven't found anything of interest in the output of dmesg, but
    maybe I'm just clueless:
