[gNewSense-users] I am unable to boot from vmlinuz-

Dear gNewSense users,

Some time ago, I decided to install linux 2.6.37-libre-lemote and to boot from
it. After having updated my /boot.cfg and my /etc/fstab by using sdaX instead
of hdaX, I was able to boot from linux 2.6.37-libre-lemote.

Sometime in May, I did an upgrade of my system moving from Metad to Parkes.

Now when I try to boot from /boot/vmlinuz-, I replace sdaX
by hdaX in my /etc/fstab before booting on Then, I can log in but
Linux-libre does not mount my /dev/hda2 to /home as intended. So, when I am
logged in as a user, I am under / and cannot access my /home.

For your information, here are the contents of my /boot.cfg and /etc/fstab
files (I use linux 2.6.37-libre-lemote now):

    default 1
    timeout 2
    showmenu 1

    title  gNewSense metad -
    kernel (wd0,0)/boot/vmlinuz-
    args   console=tty no_auto_cmd root=/dev/hda1 resume=/dev/hda3 rootdelay=8

    title  gNewSense metad - 2.6.37
    kernel (wd0,0)/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.37-libre-lemote
    args   console=tty no_auto_cmd root=/dev/sda1 resume=/dev/sda3 rootdelay=8


    # /etc/fstab: static file system information.
    # <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
    proc            /proc           proc    defaults          0       0
    /dev/sda1       /               ext3    errors=remount-ro 0       0
    /dev/sda2       /home           ext3    defaults          0       0
    /dev/sda3       none            swap    sw,pri=20000      0       0

Does someone know how I can resolve this problem?
