boot hangs on pass phrase to unock encrypted root
i can no longer boot my computer due to the problem in the subject line. i´ve looked in the initramfs-tools bug reports, but can not find anything exactly like this. but im not completly sure what package i should look for the problem in.
the problem is the boot hangs on the luks passphrase. i key the passphrase and press enter, and nothing happens. before, when the system booted, upon entering the passphrase and pressing enter, i would get a newline, and soon after the message that the disk was unlocked or that the passphrase is wrong. but now i dont even get the newline.
im running debian/squeeze, kernel linux-image-2.6.26-2-amd64, Intel(R) Celeron(R) CPU 2.80GHz
by the way, i can mount the encrypted disk from a live cd with out any problems using cryptsetup, vgscan and mount.
the only thing related i found on the internet, is related to a usb keyboard, but im using the integrated keyb of my lap. http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1228063
