Re: Broken Lenny kernel?
Kernel was updated from linux-image-2.6.26-1-mckinley 2.6.26-10 to 2.6.26-11. Upon completion, the system can't be restarted properly. I mean, the reboot sequence doesn't ignite, neither by entering reboot as root nor by pressing the Ctrl+Alt+Del keys. I must switch off and on the system.
initramfs-tools wasn't updated but a new initrd image was generated.
Reverting to kernel 2.6.26-10 (even while keeping linux-libc-dev 2.6.26-11) makes the system bootable again.
I didn't have time to hook up a serial console to record the kernel trace when the system finally crashes. Maybe today?

version did you update to? Did you also update initramfs-tools?
/var/log/dpkg.log can tell you. A boot log would also be helpful.
