Bug#343048: linux-image-2.6.14-2-686: modules ide-generic and ide-disk not loading

Package: linux-image-2.6.14-2-686
Version: 2.6.14-5
Followup-For: Bug #343048

I have the same problem. At first I thought it might be the way yaird was
generating the ram disk, so I tried using initramfs-tools instead. This did
not work (the error was about the same stated in other words in the boot
process). When I "dpkg -i" to the version that was previously working fine
(kernel version 2.6.14-4) I was surprised to find it had now the exact same
error. This probably means that it is not the kernel package's fault, but
something about the way the initrd is generated (although it is giving the
same problem with yaird and initramfs-tools). 

I repeat: The previously working fine kernel package
linux-image-2.6.14-2-686_2.6.14-4 is _not_ working now either after I rolled
back to it using "dpkg -i".

On boot the system does give me a console when hitting the error so it lets
me manually load the modules. "modprobe ide-generic" and "modprobe ide-disk"
allows the system to boot just fine.

Hope it helps.
