I will, but it will be my first one (in the .deb). And i don't know
how it will run, because i must cross compile on x86-64.
Anyway, lets see what will happen ;)
Generally with such (hardware driver) errors, i whouldn't suggest to
dpkg install/uninstall care stuff. Just kernel with some modules in
initramfs, without even mounting any _important_ file systems, like
/root or others.
Having flash stick with GRUB helps with such testing, all you need is
just to copy tested stuff on it, and have menu item for it, and run
BTW, if any of initramfs-tools developers see this, i would suggest to add
shell execution, if debug option is in cmdline, like this:
exec >/tmp/initramfs.debug 2>&1
echo Type C-d to continue booting...
Having done all one might need, C-d and boot is countinueing. (maybe there
are other options, i don't know ;)
But, Hilmar. If you do not feel comfortable in debug environment, better
not to try...
