Package: grub
Version: 0.97-36
Severity: critical

I installed a base etch system (just base) and then upgraded to sid,
after this I was left with an unbootable system that stuck at "Waiting
for root file system...".
This of course is evil.

The problem was that grub didn't got /dev/hda paths changed to /dev/sda
paths (the ide/ata/scsi/etc chaos in the kernel past 2.6.1x changed
this, remember?).

And yes, I'm not reporting this from the same machine I got the issue,
but you can trust me on this one :). Feel free to ask me for details.
