It might be a timing problem with the new kernel and loading that module. Putting the module load at the end of the boot process will probably take care of that.
Yeah that is the point ! I did not notice that the kernel tries to load the driver /usr/lib/hotplug/<driver name> before /usr is mounted (that is a separate partition) !
In fact the kernel update gave me "udev" - which caused the mess.
But the problem is not solved. What shall i do ? Changing the order of the different scripts in /etc/init.d in order the partitions to be mounted erlier ? This seems to be hasardous hacking.
(Why did the debian developer not pay attention to that issue ?
Thanks for your help
