I’m trying to upgrade my kernel. When i get to the step where i should build the img for grub (i guess the command below is doing that) I get this error:
yaird error: bad device link in /sys/block/sda (fatal)
Since I installed debian using a USB drive, HDD1 was /dev/sdb and HDD2 was /dev/sdc, the USB was /dev/sda.
Is there a way to force mkinitrd.yaird to build the img for /dev/sdb?
I’m using this command:
mkinitrd.yaird -o /boot/initrd.img-2.6.36 2.6.36
yaird is not part of the stable or testing release, and seems to be no longer maintained. I strongly suggest you use initramfs-tools instead of yaird.
