Grub stops booting with the rescue-prompt and prints an error: symbol "grub_gettext" not found, similar to this bug: http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=558312 Booting into the rescue from a debian cd and running update-grub (running perfect) and grub-install /dev/sda or grub-install/dev/sdb i got following error: /usr/sbin/grub-setup: warn: Your core.img is unusually large. It won't fit in the embedding area. /usr/sbin/grub-setup: error: Embedding is not possible, but this is required when the root device is on a RAID array or LVM volume. I found a debian bug, which is a little bit corresponding to this message, but this should resolved: http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=535316 I have no idea...is this a new bug, an old bug or only a silly mistake? I purged the whole grub and reinstalled from rescue system and run ino the same problem. A short overview on my box: /dev/md0, contains /dev/sda1 and /dev/sdb1 (working fine in recue mode) /dev/vg0/lvroot contains with all folders instead of /home, /temp and swap and is located on /dev/md0 Installed kernels: linux-image-2.6.30-2-amd64 linux-image-2.6.31-1-amd64Hi, Markus I have had a similar problem since mid September, Developers are working on device-kit. Did you try both kernels? 2.6.30-1 works for me. You're an update ahead of me.. 2.6.30-2-amd64 definitely doesn't work for me... Mdadm & LVM2..
both kernels was running perfectly i thought. I dont now any possibility how to get to know, which packages exactly was updated yesterday on my box.
How did you solved the problem for yourself? Or is the box unusable since sebtember? Do you have a bugtracking number for the devicekit package?
