Package: linux-image-2.6.21-1-686
Version: 2.6.21-2
Severity: important


I've installed 2.6.21 on two different VMware Workstation guests running on two different hosts and both fail to boot. 

They wait for a long time at "Begin: Waiting for root file system... ..."
Then it says:
ALERT!  /dev/sha1 does not exist.  Dropping to a shell!

I have no idea how to debug this.
