Package: kernel-image-2.6.8-1-686
Version: 2.6.8-3
Severity: important

KMail has problems directly sending a reportbug e-mail file including 
headers (see: http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=89882). I did not find 
an easy way to add these two headers manually, mutt is not set up and my 
ISP's SMTP requires SMTP AUTH:

The kernel from this package doesn't boot on my IBM ThinkPad T23 laptop 
with 1.13 GHz Mobile Pentium 3 and 384 MB RAM. After GRUB loads the 
kernel and the screen is blanked it will stay blank. I waited some 
minutes, but nothing happens. This also happened sometimes with 2.6.7, 
but most of the time it works. I never had this problem with 2.6.6. 
Earlier versions of the 2.6.8 kernel-image packages (2.6.8-1 and 2.6.8-2) 
worked correctly, but CD burning with "K3b" did only work as "root" on 
this configuration. I updated to the latest 2.6.8 kernel-image package to 
see if it fixes that problem and to see whether ACPI works better. But 
well my machine won't boot with it.

Since I ran Kernel 2.6.7 I installed a Teac DVD burner, model DV-W24EW. 
The installation of that device may be related to the problem, as I 
didn't experience any boot problems with 2.6.7 before. However I am able 
to burn CDs and DVDs just fine with this burner (with 2.6.7) provided 
that 2.6.7 does boot (which is most of the time).

This is what I use in GRUB to start the Debian Linux system:

###Don't change this comment - YaST2 identifier: Original name: linux###
title Debian Linux
    kernel (hd0,4)/vmlinuz root=/dev/hda5 vga=791
    initrd (hd0,4)/initrd.img

This is from a GRUB installed by SUSE Linux 9.1, I didn't get around 
setting up a Debian GRUB installation yet.

This is the PCI hardware in my system:

Thanks for your feedback, I'm closing this bugreport.

Keep in mind that we want to release sarge with 2.6.8.
