I'm running Debian SID with a custom kernel 220.127.116.11 with SMP on a P4 system, I've been trying to upgrade to kernel 2.6.9 but it keeps failing.
The first problem was during compiling the kernel (make-kpkg), there was an error about not beeing able to bet firmware information, and I was able to fix it by removing the BT848 support from the kernel (so no V4L in this one).
The 2nd problem is on I can't seem to fix,
during boottime everything seems to go fine until I get the following errors :
/etc/rc.S.D/S05keymap.sh: line 8: /dev/null not a directory
and I get a lot of these errors, the last one beeing :
the device node /dev/hda2 for the root filesystem is missing,
incorrect, or there is no entry for the root filesystem
listed in /etc/fstab
The system is also unable to create a temporary node in
/dev/shm to use as a work-around
This means you have to fix this manually.
CONTROL-D will exit from this shell and REBOOT the system.
/dev/console: Not a directory
Give root pasword for maintenance
(op type Control-D to continue)
At this point I get the Bash shell but I can't do much, and also my keyboard is not in my local layout.
I guess this is a UDEV problem (Since I've read they are gonna abandone the old system /dev/hdxx) and go with the nex UDEV system.
I've been searching the net with google but I can't find any information on setting-up UDEV correctly in Debian. I did found some information on Gentoo but that didn't help. I did install some UDEV packages with apt-get that were required but that also didn't work.
I think I will need to modify my LILO.CONF for this to work, but I don't know HOW or WHAT I have to do.
So my question is :
Is there anybody who can help me out with this, or point me to some information that I can use.
