Public bug reported:
Binary package hint: linux-image-2.6-386
Automatic update from kernel 2.6.20-15-generic to 2.6.20-16-generic.
System will start to boot but then hangs with message "Resume: could not
stat the resume device, please type the file name to try again"
(spelling error in quotes verbatim). If you hit return, system boots,
but drives other than the root drive fail to mount(including the swap
drive). If run update-initramfs, still same behavior.
Problem can solved by editing fstab and changing entries from sdxx to
hdxx, for example, /dev/sda5 to /dev/hda5. Apparently, the kernel
update failed to include the recent feisty change from /dev/hdx to
/dev/sdx syntax. Note on the system on which this occurred the drives
are PATA, not SATA, yet when feisty was installed that fstab generated
was with the sdx syntax (which worked with kernel 2.6.20-15, but not
the 220.127.116.11 version)
