I'm running Debian 2.6.18, and after a recent apt-update and apt-upgrade I can no longer boot! The error messages read:
Begin: Mounting root file system... Begin: Running /scripts/local-top ... Loading multipath module
Loading multipath daemon
/proc/misc: No entry for device mapper found
Is device-mapper driver missing from kernel?
(repeated several times)
Incompatible libdevmapper 1.02.08 (2006-07-17) (compat) and kernel driver
device mapper prerequisites not met
/init: /init: 1: udevadm: not found
Begin: Waiting for root file system ... done.
Gave up waiting for root device.
It looks like I need to make some changes to kernel modules at boot-up (?) but how do I do that without booting up and using modconf? Or is the new libdevmapper the problem? How would I revert to an older version??
Any help appreciated.
