Thanks for testing!

All configuration files are backed up with a suffix of '.old' (or '^old'
in one case). So you can check them and restore those backups if the
script did the wrong thing.

Oops. I will fix this in the next version.

For now, you can either:
a. Remove linux-base.
b. Set the 'boot' parameter in /etc/lilo.conf to the proper path under
/dev/disk/by-label/ or /dev/disk/by-uuid/ (which is what linux-base
should have done), then run 'dpkg --configure linux-base'.

Thanks for the fast help.

I have just executed 'dpkg -P linux-base'. So it is now safe to reboot
computer (after having issued 'lilo' too), is that right?

I ask this because I see that the "dpkg -P" above reput the old version
of /etc/ files, but it seems that not all of them. fstab is identical
to fstab.old, but blkid.tab for ex. is not identical to blkid.tab:

There was also a file under udev modified, if I remember correctly, but
I do not see which one in /etc/udev/

Should be.

linux-base does not modify /etc/blkid.tab (at least, not directly).
That must have been changed by something else.

That would be /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-cd.rules

Oh, I have just rebooted and it works!! Thanks for the help.

I forgot to add critical, so that others can see it before the new
uploading.

I don't think this is critical: /etc/lilo.conf was not modified and your
system would have been bootable even if you did not remove linux-base.

Well, using correct severity then. I was scared that it will not boot
because I thought that only the new kernel works after the device renaming.
