Package: initramfs-tools
Version: 0.52b
Severity: important


Yesterday my stock kernel 2.6.15-1-k7 booted fine, but today it panics
with the message that it can't mount the root fs. The 2.6.12 kernel
which I also still have installed works just fine.

It appears that yesterday, in the daily dist-upgrade (on testing), I got
these packages:

-rw-r--r--  1 root root   37520 2006-02-20 14:47 initramfs-tools_0.52b_all.deb
-rw-r--r--  1 root root  117448 2006-02-18 18:47 klibc-utils_1.2.2-3_i386.deb
-rw-r--r--  1 root root   18582 2006-02-18 18:47 libklibc_1.2.2-3_i386.deb

As I haven't touched the LILO or kernel setup in anyway, I strongly
suspect that one of these broke my kernel boot.

Any ideas for workarounds are welcome!

closing as requested.
the real upgrade bug was #352705, which requires a newer kernel-package
to unstable for the linux-images. now that the initramfs-tools wrapper
script is in etch, that may happen soon.
