Bug#382013: Bug#382016: installation: kernel 2.6.15 does not work, after upgrading some packages.

The problem seams to have disappeared; I did not understand why.

Between the moment when the problem was existing and now.

I have downloaded image and header of kernel 2.6.12 (using apt-get from
kernel 2.6.12).
Modify /etc/lilo.conf and runned lilo, to active kernel 2.6.16.
Patched and compiled internet ADSL eagle-usb module/package for kernel
Runt thunderbird/firefox, under gnome, on kernel 2.6.16, once internet
ADSL eagle-usb was working.

Kernel 2.6.16 was working, and now I discovered 2.6.15 works again. ;-)
But it does not explain me why it was not working :-(

According to /var/log/auth.log, I did:
Aug 8 12:38:05 €€€ sudo: €€€ : TTY=tty3 ; PWD=€€€ ; USER=€€€ ;
COMMAND=/usr/bin/apt-get install grub
(I do not remember why.)

Aug 8 13:19:54 €€€ sudo: €€€ : TTY=tty2 ; PWD=€€€ ; USER=€€€ ;
COMMAND=/usr/bin/apt-get install linux-image-2.6.16-2-686

It does not appear but I also installed headers, at one time (required
to compile eagle-usb).

Aug 8 13:28:18 €€€ login[2555]: (pam_unix) session opened for user root
by (uid=0)
Aug 8 13:28:19 €€€ login[2586]: ROOT LOGIN on 'tty1'
Aug 8 13:28:32 €€€ sudo: €€€ : TTY=tty1 ; PWD=€€€ ; USER=€€€ ;
COMMAND=/usr/bin/vim /etc/lilo.conf

It does not appear in the log, but I ran lilo, by there.

I also used module-assistant command to compile eagle-usb under 2.6.16
module-assistant prepare
module-assistant get eagle-usb
module-assistant build eagle-usb

And this one was for fun:
Aug 8 16:25:07 €€€ sudo: €€€ : TTY=pts/3 ; PWD=€€€ ; USER=€€€ ;
COMMAND=/usr/bin/apt-get install python.*2.5

Could you please provide the content of /etc/kernel-img.conf -
do_symlinks = yes
relative_links = yes
do_bootloader = no
do_bootfloppy = no
do_initrd = yes
link_in_boot = no
postinst_hook = /sbin/update-grub
postrm_hook = /sbin/update-grub

 and also
tell us if you've run some custom ramdisk-building scripts yourself, in
addition to the stuff done automatically by the kernel image postinst
I do not know what is a«custom ramdisk-building scripts».
I just know I had had an issue when I switched from 2.6.12 to 2.6.15
some months ago, and I believe to remember that some line related to
*ram* was to be added or modified in some configuration file.
Also, do you have lilo installed? Do you use it, or do you use GRUB or
another bootloader?
Yes, I use lilo. Grub is also installed.
When I installed kernel 2.6.16 (today), grub configuration file was
automatically updated, but I had to update (by hand) /etc/lilo.conf, and
then run lilo (as root).
I use lilo, because I know how to add a kernel and modify option in lilo.
I do not use grub, because I do not know grub configuration, and lilo
works fine till now.

dpkg -l |grep "lilo\|grub"
ii grub 0.97-13 GRand Unified Bootloader
ii lilo 22.6.1-7 LInux LOader - The Classic OS loader can loa
ii lilo-doc 22.6.1-7 Documentation for LILO (LInux LOader)

I hope the information I give you can help Debian project.
