After submitting this post to the bug reporting system, I realized that the
intention might have been to send it directly to you as mentioned in the
If you received the message twice becasue of this my apologies. I ams not sure
whether the bug should be closed. The kernel is still simply not bootable.
Unfortunately UUID does not work either.
This is what my /etc/fstab looks right now:
UUID=c1420be7-ac52-477b-b31d-820d809105dc / ext3
defaults,errors=remount-ro 0 1
UUID=e7307d00-7354-44d4-81d3-502a0a860b7c /home ext3 defaults
UUID=5c35c1c8-a5d5-4e9d-9655-55e4ea4fed9c /usr ext3 defaults
UUID=60bd51f9-d5b5-413a-b74a-b26a2fd96a46 /var ext3 defaults
title Debian GNU/Linux, kernel 2.6.26-1-686
title Debian GNU/Linux, kernel 2.6.22-3-k7
The blkid on the machine looks like this:
/dev/hdc1: LABEL="boot" UUID="c1420be7-ac52-477b-b31d-820d809105dc"
/dev/hdc5: LABEL="/usr" UUID="5c35c1c8-a5d5-4e9d-9655-55e4ea4fed9c"
/dev/hdc6: UUID="e7307d00-7354-44d4-81d3-502a0a860b7c" SEC_TYPE="ext2"
/dev/hdc7: LABEL="/var" UUID="60bd51f9-d5b5-413a-b74a-b26a2fd96a46"
These UUIDs were collected while running 2.6.22. Given the nature of UUIDs, I
expect that these do not change while running a different kernel.
Note that what you expect to be on one line actually IS on one line, the
editor inserted the breaks.
Now I have taken some pictures of the screen when the boot failure occurs. I
am linking here to the pictures because I have not found a way yet to paste
the screens into a text file in BusyBox. Copying is a PITA and error prone.
But let me know if linking to pictures is against the policy and I try to
copy the text to this message anyway.
What strikes me is that apparently /dev/disk/by-uuid/xxx is expected, but this
device doesn't exist.
Kernel 2.6.22 still boots without problems, even now I have replaced /dev/hdc
