Default Bug#507676: initramfs-tools: does not wait for usb disks in fstab to show up

Package: initramfs-tools
Version: 0.92l
Severity: normal

Booting linux-image-2.6.26-1-686 initramfs does not wait for the 2 USB disks that are in /etc/fstab to show up, causing the
boot to fail.
This is the relevant section of /etc/fstab:

From what i've heard from previous posts, you can try with the
"rootdelay=n" kernel boot parameter, where n is the number of seconds to
wait.


Good luck.

Cesare.

But it isn't the root that needs delayed, the 2 USB disks that don't have root on them but other partitions need to be delayed.

Even fixing the error of http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=507059
and installing the latest udev with udevadm: same result: no wait!
