kernel-image-2.4.27-1-586.tsc - initrd.img not found after upgrade + Kernel panic VFS
Package : kernel-image
I was running unstable. I have made apt-get update / apt-get upgrade and
received this new package.
After the installation I made the asked reboot and then I received the
Error 15: file not found.
I am using a Toshiba Libretto 50T.
I used d-i rc2 as a rescue disk (with the HD-MEDIA files I had
previously written to my disk). I found that GNU GRUB was looking for
initrd.img-2.4.27-1-586tsc while the right name seems to be (on my
computer) : initrd.img-2.4.27-1-586tsc.new
I have edited the GRUB command line and used
/boot/initrd-2.4.27-586tsc.new to boot.
After this first first strange behaviour I encoutered a Kernel panic :
VFS : Cannot open root device "hda3" or 03:03
Please append a correct "root=" boot option
Kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on 03:03
I have also to tell that I had also installed a kernel 2.6.9 which was
giving me the same Kernel panic. This kernel was the first in GRUB .
You may find more informations (in french) on
http://libretto.debian.free.fr , its a kind of blog with my experiences.
Does I have to consider this as a bug ?
If yes aren't they 2 bugs ?
Does I have to report this or these bugs ?
Is there something I can do to rescue my broken system ?
Is there something interesting to save from my system before I erase all
with a new installation ? (that's for the community, I have no personnal
data on the Libretto)
