Shouldn't be a note in the news (side notes in this site) about not upgrading udev+initramfs -c?

This must be quite a hard to find bug considering the varying reports.

One more data point: For me not only 2.6.39 crashes, but also the latest 2.6.38. This kernel was running before the d-u.

An older 2.6.36 kernel is still working.

Oh I just see that last d-u seems to have rebuilt initrd for 2.6.38 too:
      Code:
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 10610678  4. Jan 18:33 initrd.img-2.6.36-2.slh.3-aptosid-686
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 10682277 20. Mai 14:29 initrd.img-2.6.38-6.slh.1-aptosid-686
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 10820792 20. Mai 14:31 initrd.img-2.6.39-0.slh.1-aptosid-686

my 64 box gets me to the grub rescue screen with the error

Confirm this on my machine. A chrooted reinstall of grub helded.
Funny to chroot into luks+lvm from live cd...
This was the second time this was necessary in last months. Sure it was my last grub update Evil or Very Mad

edit: in this thread udev and grub errors are mixed, but they are independent. I had my error with udev 168-2 (no update to 169)

fixed udev packages have now entered our repo, in case of already affected systems it's important to rebuild the broken initrds.

Yes, great. Thank you, slh. After a simple dist-upgrade the initrd of kernel 2.6.39 was rebuild automatically (probably because a new version of initramfs-tools that also came in) and rebooting into this kernel works fine.

Thanks slh for the fix

works for me, too.

Rebuild of initramfs is required for OLDER kernels. udev upgrade will only create a new initramfs for the current kernel. Older kernel-initramfs's are untouched.

If you want to update the intrds for ALL your installed kernels (without booting into each one):

as root:
      Code:
update-initramfs -u -k all

very possible, but no clues to what got borked as the update went smooth, no errors, but, that means nothing Wink
