RE: Rebooting from "busibox" shell

In busibox shell, the modules for SCSI an FileSystem are not loaded.
I can load with modprobe sym53c8xx, 53c700 and ext3, but there are no disk
entries in /dev directory.
I will take a look to apt-get howto to install 2.6.17 or 17 from ustable.
"echo b > /proc/sysrq-trigge" is exactely what i whas searching. Whil try
this today
Thank you for your help

The log shows indeed that your discs are not available. Either because the
driver is not loaded correctly or because the devices were not created
correctly. The udev "dump" is the most probably direct cause, but the big
question is what's behind it.

Kyle already suggested one option, another could be to try the 2.6.16 or
even 2.6.17 kernel from unstable.

Here are some comments from the initramfs-tools maintainer (maks) and Kyle
on IRC that may help you, especially the comments about how to reboot from
the busybox shell:
< maks> kyle had some parisc fixes, i thought they went upstream < maks>
i'll point that to his attention < fjp> Thx < maks> fjp also you can reboot
from busybox shell < maks> with sysrq key < maks> echo b >
/proc/sysrq-trigge < maks> latest klibc has an halt/reboot/poweroff < kyle>
yes, udev is misbehaving sometimes, and we don't quite know why.
