Default Bug#482773: linux-image-2.6.25-2-amd64: bootprocess hangs after "Begin: Waiting for the root filesystem... ..."

Package: linux-image-2.6.25-2-amd64
Version: 2.6.25-3
Severity: important


Hi,
the kernel in unstable doesn't boot for some reason. The last message it
prints is "Begin: Waiting for root filesystem... ...". I do think that
this has something to do with the initramfs. According to google the
initramfs is too large to be loaded, or something.

I've already tried to downgrade the initramfs-tools to the old
etch-version, but that didn't change a thing.
I've also tried to rebuild a smaller initramfs by changing
"MODULES=most" to "MODULES=dep" in /etc/initramfs-tools/initramfs.conf
running "update-initramfs -k 2.6.25-2-amd64 -u -v". But the bootprocess
still hung.

Please tell me, if you have any ideas what the problem is, or what I
could do, to get additional informations.

checkout http://wiki.debian.org/InitramfsDebug
and give info according to those points.

I have managed to get the new kernel running. The problem has been, that
for some reason all hda* devices become sda* devices, when I'm using the
recent kernel.
When I change every hda entry in the boot patameters and /etc/fstab to
sda, the system runs fine. Additionally I made a "sudo dpkg-reconfigure
uswsusp" to get rid of a error message.


However, I think that there still is a problem, because I have got an
IDE disk which is labeled as if it were SCSI, and thats at least unusual.


According to lsmod the IDE modules have been loaded:

squish@Blub:~$ lsmod | grep ide
ide_pci_generic 9476 0 [permanent]
ide_core 138160 2 ide_pci_generic,sis5513


And I haven't found anything of interest in the output of dmesg, but
maybe I'm just clueless:
