Re: HP ZX6000 & Debian "testing"

Hi Patrick,

And welcome aboard :-)

Aren't you hitting this issue?

In this case, the only solution at this time is to downgrade
initramfs-tools from 0.99 to 0.98.8. But you'll have to downgrade
kernel too, as Debian kernels > 2.6.39 require initramfs-tools 0.99.

Hope this helps,
