RE: Ultra1 does not boot after kernel upgrade to 2.6.26


I resolved the issue by replacing module esp by sun_esp. Ultra1 now enjoys full upgrade to lenny. Fantastic, since this is really old machine.

Thanks for all your replies,

Hi Donatas

          If you use UUIDs inside /etc/fstab instead of the raw
device names you may have joy?

e.g. ls -l /dev/disks/by-uuid and find the UUID of /dev/sda1 
Then replace /dev/sda1 in /etc/fstab with UUID=<the_uuid_of_sda1>
