I know this is a bug often seen before, but there are a few things
different. I know about the problem that newer kernels consider hda => sda
etc. But I thought it was well before 2.6.22 that it happened.
I had a system running Etch with kernel 2.6.18. As a prelude to dist-upgrade
to Lenny I installed 2.6.22. This was not satisfactory as
kernel-headers-2.6-k7 is not installable.
When I upgraded from 2.6.22 to 2.6.26. The machine would
hang at "Waiting for root file system"
Then I replaced occurences to hdc1 with LABEL entries. This is the state of
the boot stanza in menu.lst and the relevant mount line in fstab:
For me that indicates that the LABEL statements are correct.
As general recommendation from Google finds I updated initramfs:
update-initramfs -u -k 2.6.26-1-686
This resulted in a /boot/initrd.img-2.6.26-1-686 with the timestampt of
I fear that since the machine is running kernel 2.6.22 at the time of
update-initramfs, the update still doesn't know about how to handle sdc
instead of hdc.
Until now I have not found a way to get this system to boot correctly. Since
it was a fairly standard kernel upgrade, nothing fancy, no custom kernels
etc, I believe this is a bug.
It surprised me as well that after installing the linux-image package, the
menu.lst was not automagically updated with the new kernel stanza. I did
that manually. Not sure whether that is a bug though.
