of the issues we were facing. In fact now I have tons of errors, dbus seems
screwd and many other things, among the problems I have now is that X fails
with no screen found (both nv and nvidia drivers)  and I have no network
interfaces I fail to get eth0 up. So
*I'm quite sad as this is a even bigger mistake than the last one. So I
think I need to chroot again rever to the old kernel...
Anyone else expecting this kind of problem?
Btw the reboor parameters for the kernel (which I've tested before the
upgrade) also did not work.
