Default Bug#509298: closed by maximilian attems ( Bug#509298: initrmfs prevents boot with kernel 2.6.26-1-686 in VMware using lsilogic SCSI disk)

VMware using lsilogic SCSI disk

device names are not stable.
use UUID as bootarg if you need a reliable root.


closing as not a bug.


I don't think that's a very good answer!

1) This problem renders the machine unusable on an upgrade from a pretty
stock Etch. That's a BAD THING!


2) Correct me if I'm wrong, but using the UUID is not going to help if
/dev/sda doesn't exist. IDE works, SATA does not.


I still have both virtual disks and can mount one or the other and poke
around to provide more data, as needed.


Later,
JP

"Microsoft Tax" = the additional hardware & yearly fees for the add-on
software required to protect Windows from its own poorly designed and
implemented self, while the overhead incidentally flattens Moore's Law.
