Hello Frank,

sid:/home/frank# aptitude full-upgrade
The following packages will be upgraded:
    gir1.2-javascriptcoregtk-3.0 gir1.2-webkit-3.0
libjavascriptcoregtk-3.0-0 libwebkitgtk-1.0-0 libwebkitgtk-1.0-common
    libwebkitgtk-3.0-common linux-libc-dev linux-tools-3.2 ntfs-3g
xserver-common xserver-xephyr

The only thing remotely related to this is linux-tools-3.2. Maybe
this package then tries to build the initrd for the 2.6.38 kernel and
fails for some reason? On the other hand, this appears rather
unlikely, as it claims to only contain a ‘perf’ tool for performance

Looking through the packages that were updated, it **appears** as though the culprit is ntfs-3g. It's the one that calls the update of initrd.img .

It looks a little bit as if there was not enough space on /var/tmp,
but I am not sure…

What do

# df -hP


# df -hPi


Looks like there's enough room.

sid:/boot# df -hP

Does the initrd get generated at all? (# ls -la /boot)

Well, it's there, but I am unsure whether it's a valid file because of the FATAL warnings when it was generated.

I got that too:

update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-3.2.0-1-amd64

But it appears to have no effect on reboot. AFAICT.
But what's worse, it deleted konsole because the dependent kdepart package does not exist...
