Hi, yesterday I installed the linux-image-2.6.15-5-386 and had some problems.
The computer is a old box with a PC-Chips M598LMRT motherboard, a AMD K6
400Mhz CPU, 96 MB of RAM, and using the onboard vga card.

The problems are:

- no fb console: I'm using vga=773 in the kernel command. I had this problem
before with previous 2.6.14-x iterations, but I thought that it was solved.
It seems not, ins't it?

- HD not found: After switching to vga=normal, I saw that the new kernel does
not boot because it can't find my HD. I get this message:

/bin/cat: /sys/block/hda/dev: No such file or directory.

a few times and then

Device /sys/block/hda/dev seems to be down.

But the HD is ok, the other installed kernel ( 2.6.12) boots without problems.
Finally a shell prompt opens, where I don't know what to do.

Thanks in advance for any hint,

I also had this problem. Please look at the thread After Upgrade No Bootup. The problem seems to be with the unstable version of yaird. It must be purged and the testing version used. The links provided in the thread I mentioned should solve the problem.
