surprise it still doesn't work.
I then tried a standard Debian kernel which also doesn't work:

I would guess perhaps that the initrd is not starting udev? (Don't use
udev myself but it looks like you do, and if it wasn't working I'd
expect to see this kind of thing.)
I'd suggest that the technique of pressing return to get a shell when
the initrd fires up and then executing the commands in linuxrc etc. by
hand to see where it starts to go wrong might be useful here.
nope, not using udev, dpkg -l | grep udev turns up nothing.
I understand what you are saying in regards to the initrd but i don't
see why i would need an initrd in the first place as i have ext3, dm_mod
and everything else that i think in need compiled in.
I then tried with an initrd to see if that could be a solution.
I really don't have a clue anymore and after more than > 50 reboots and
countless kernel compiles, i'm fed up with it. That's why i'm
considering a new install.
