What does mount say if you call it after login ?

When I boot from, after login, /dev does contain no "hd*" nor "sd*"...
But when "/dev/hda1" was being checked under by "fsck from
util-linux-ng 2.17.2" (after "* Checking root file system..." message), it was
named "/lib/init/rw/rootdev" instead of "/dev/hda1".

OK, but what's the output of mount?

/lib/init/rw/rootdev is a temporary device node created by /etc/init.d/ for fsck. It means there's probably something wrong with /etc/fstab. Try this on both kernels:

grep UUID /etc/fstab | while read dev other ; do sudo findfs $dev ; done

It should give you the device files of all file systems that should be mounted by UUID.

Also try blkid on both kernels to check if they both see the same UUIDs.

might it be that there is some error in the /home filesystem ?

If it is the case, linux-2.6.37 would not mount /home either I think.

A manual fsck doesn't hurt and you'd know for sure.
