At least the udev issue is known to me. It can be worked around by
touching /etc/udev/kernel-upgrade before upgrading udev, allowing the
kernel and udev to be upgraded at the same time and without reboot
between them. See<URL: http://bugs.debian.org/549522>,
<URL: http://bugs.debian.org/566000> and
<URL: http://bugs.debian.org/571255> for discussion about the udev
It has been known for a while, and no-one have been able to come up
with a udev patch to avoid it, so I guess we will have to live with
this upgrade pain for Lenny->Squeeze.
As a user, I now know about this, but I think I would like to have it
feature prominently in (several) conspicuous places were I coming to the
upgrade cold. A suggestion.
A failed boot can ruin your whole day.
Thanks to all Debian developers and others for all your work. It is
