lenny to squeeze dist-upgrade fails due to missing support for rebooting Linux while upgrade udev
I've tried to dist-upgrade from Lenny to Squeeze (testing) but failed.
Here the reason:
| Preparing to replace udev 0.125-7+lenny3 (using
| Since release 150, udev requires that support for the CONFIG_SYSFS_DEPRECATED
| feature is disabled in the running kernel.
| Please upgrade your kernel before or while upgrading udev.
| AT YOUR OWN RISK, you can force the installation of this version of udev
| WHICH DOES NOT WORK WITH YOUR RUNNING KERNEL AND WILL BREAK YOUR SYSTEM
| AT THE NEXT REBOOT by creating the /etc/udev/kernel-upgrade file.
| There is always a safer way to upgrade, do not try this unless you

| Errors were encountered while processing:

lenny$ uname -a
Linux lenny 2.6.26-2-686 #1 SMP Thu Sep 16 19:35:51 UTC 2010 i686 GNU/Linux
Do we need a more sophisticated upgrade procedure where a Linux reboot
is supported (before releasing Squeeze) ?
Open for discussion,
