Default Bug#582177: initramfs-tools: fails to load ramdisk on boot; ... version downgrade

More information

I downgraded the initramfs-tools back to version 93.4 and the problem is STILL
PRESENT.

Honestly, I don't know what to do... it would seem to be that my setup is
tenuous at best and there is probably an instability in the boot process that
I do not understand.

Please advise...

C. Cropper

sure, the initramfs won't be changed without telling so,
so to have the effect of the downgrade one needs:
update-initramfs -u

looked at both the initramfs and they look good.
contain modules you'd wish they do.
qemu can unpack and run it's stuff.

well the left suspicion is the boot precaching biting your setup.
what I would need is you to boot with rootdelay=12 or something
and then see on the bootconsole what is wrong.
is the raid running? check cat /proc/mdstat
if not try to enable it with mdadm, is the crypto device there.

currently I have not much info on where the failure happens.

thanks
