  1. Bug#499378: linux-image on lenny hangs when running in vmware-instance

    Package: linux-image-2.6.26-1-686
    Version: 2.6.26-1-686

    We are using VMware-Servers for our Infrastructure.
    When upgrading to lenny from etch within a vmware
    the system becomes broken, because the kernel waits saying

    Begin: Waiting for root filesystem...

    and then fails with

    ALERT! /dev/sda1 does not exist. Dropping to a shell
    ...
    ...
    ...
    /bin/sh: can't access tty; job control turned off
    (initramfs)


    Selecting the older kernel-entry from grub of course works.

    I am using Debian GNU/Linux Lenny, kernel 2.6.26-1-686

    Which version of VMware? They had a bug in the SCSI target emulation
    which makes the driver believe there are no devices.

    2.6.18? Can you test the 2.6.24 from Etch?
