Default Bug#644850: linux-image-2.6.32-5-kirkwood: 2.6.32-38 does not recognise USB harddisks any longer

Package: linux-2.6
Version: 2.6.32-38
Severity: normal

Hi all,

after upgrading my Sheeva plug from Debian 6.0.2 to 6.0.3 also the kernel version
2.6.32-38 was installed. Since then my two Western Digital
USB harddisk are no longer recognised. The kernel is reporting:

[ 232.030408] scsi_mod: Unknown symbol blk_get_queue
[ 232.041504] scsi_mod: Unknown symbol blk_put_queue

"lsusb" is showing the disks, the block devices are missing though :

Kind regards, Joerg.

Was the new kernel flashed correctly? Does rebooting help?

Mmmh, I am quite sure that I didn't see any error message when running
the upgrade to 6.0.3, and I can find those messages in /var/log/dpkg.log ...

... did a reboot ... and there you go, the USB disks get recognised
again. Fixed for me at least.

So I assume the new kernel wasn't really flashed. On the other hand: if
the previous kernel was still in place why would it suddenly fail?
Strange ...


Kind regards, Joerg.

Hm, what version of flash-kernel do you have installed? Please also send
the output of

grep . /etc/kernel/postinst.d/*

so we can see whether the hooks are set up correctly.

I believe the answer to above is that the new kernel did not change ABI
and therefore modules got installed instead of the old ones (not aside
them) - causing the old kernel to try load new modules and failing.

This is the usual initramfs-tools hook script. In 'squeeze',
update-initramfs is supposed to run flash-kernel.

When you saw this problem, had you rebooted since the kernel upgrade?

After upgrading to Debian 6.0.3 I rebooted straight away, ending up with the issue I mentioned. Rebooting again did not help, I had to run flash-kernel to fix things...



Regards, Joerg.

This is the usual initramfs-tools hook script. In 'squeeze',
update-init!
ramfs is
supposed to run flash-kernel.

When you saw this problem, had you rebooted since the kernel upgrade?

Seems like this could be a bug in initramfs-tools. I've reassigned it.

Good evening,

Same problem here, My outputs were similar to Joerg's.

I reflashed the kernel (twice), but still have the two errors, and my USB drive
is not recognized.

Any idea?

Regards,

Dominique
