Package: linux-image-2.6.15-1-k7
Version: 2.6.15-6
Severity: critical
Justification: breaks the whole system

Ran an aptitude update - linux-image-2.6.15-1-k7 updated.

Rebooted as advised (since it's the same version as the running kernel
under update).

During boot it states that it can't find /dev/hda2 and drops back to

/dev/hda2 is my root & boot partition.

2.6.12-1-k7 still boots OK.

Notes - this is a standard deb kernel with initrd and udev booting from

I have no idea how to go about debugging this and of course - since it
can't find the disks - no logs to look in :(

yes that's good practise to keep at least one more known good kernel
around, glad you did.
