Subject: initramfs-tools: dist-upgrade lenny->squeeze mkinitramfs: failed to determine root device
Package: initramfs-tools
Version: 0.98.4
Severity: normal

*** Please type your report below this line ***
trying to dist-upgrade my orion (arm) box form lenny to squeeze i got the following error:
Processing triggers for initramfs-tools ...
update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-2.6.32-2-orion5x
mkinitramfs: failed to determine root device
mkinitramfs: workaround is MODULES=most
Error please report bug on initramfs-tools and include the output of 'mount'

Additional info:
root is on a usb-flash-disk, in normal operation root is on an aufs,
to prevent to many writes to the flash.
for the dist-upgrade the box was booted without the bootarg
I do not fully uderstand why root still is listed as aufs, but
the writes do really hit the usb-disk (otherways dist-upgrade
would have resulted in out of memory long ago).
followed the url blow for the aufs-setup
thank you very much for any help.
ps: unsure if this should not have higher severety as rebooting now would 
porbably make the system unbootable.
