This mail thread is already going to these mailing lists
I will try 2.6.27-1-alpha-generic ASAP and report if it is maybe solved,
else I will post the exact error message XFS kernel module is presenting (at
least it's not a problem of my installation, because 2.6.31 and previous
works fine with XFS since years on an 128 Gig disk). Is the UDEV problem
gone with 2.6.37 kernel, too? I think it's 2.6.33 that fixed it (from your
previous mail on this thread).
Finally I still have to tell that Debian Unstable is still running very well
with this AlphaStation 500 with EV56! So I never understood why there was no
Debian release for Alpha anymore :(
