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


Yup, that works, at least with initramfs-tools, will try going back to yaird later. Any comments on using one instead of the other?

Just to answer Sumit's question: if you install initramfs-tools (instead of yaird) and recreate the initial ram disk (with a "dpkg-reconfigure linux-image-2.6.14-2-686" for example) you'll have a busybox executable in the image (which includes modprobe). Much more usefull than what yaird provides. I'm not up to speed on the differences between the two initrd tools, this is just what I got out-of-the-box with apt-get install. Thanks for the quick response. Ricardo

That was it.

Steps i done:
- boot with knoppix
- mount the root partition: mount /mnt/hda1
- mount the dev in the root partition: mount -o remount,dev /mnt/hda1
- chroot /mnt/hda1
- changed to /bin/bash
- mount /proc
- apt-get install initramfs-tools
- apt-get --purge remove yaird
- echo ide-generic >> /etc/mkinitramfs/modules
- echo ide-disk >> /etc/mkinitramfs/modules
- dpkg-reconfigure linux-image-2.6.14-2.686
- run lilo

Now i can boot with the kernel.

Thanks for the solutions.
