Guy:

Kernel 2.6.15.1-pa4
udev version 103

I am using this kernel since more than a year ago so I do not think there 
is a problem with its config. I am not 100% sure but I believe udev had 
been updated a couple of days before and the problem occured after that.

There is nothing suspicious on the logs, only what I wrote in my previous 
email.

I also noticed that it only can see the root partition (in read-only 
mode of course), but /boot (/dev/sda4) and /mnt/disk2 (/dev/sdb1) both 
shows as if they were empty (ls shows nothing inside them)

Thanks,
Mauro
