I've been trying to get linux running well on my macbook pro (pre september 2006) am trying to install a custom kernel to provide hardware support for the smc, keyboard, touchpad, graphics, and other drivers.
Compilation and installation are no problem: used a vanilla kernel and grabbed a copy of the current config from /boot. I use the "make-kpkg" and "dpkg -i" to compile and install the kernel (respectively). However, when I reboot into my custom kernel, the boot stops after this:
Begin: Running /scripts/local-premount
resume libgcrypt version 1.2.4
I then get a message that says:
Could not stat the resume device '/dev/sda3'
Please type in the full path name to try again or press ENTER to boot the system.
Hitting ENTER lands me in an initramfs system and .... I'm stuck. I have no idea what's going or how to get my system to boot.
Here are the kernels I've tried:
- 2.6.18-4-686 (debian default, works perfectly because I didn't compile it )
- vanilla 188.8.131.52 (compiled with the /boot/config-2.6.18-4-686 and the .config and used "make oldconfig" to configure. Then it was "fakeroot make-kpkg --initrd kernel_image" to build and "sudo dpkg -i" to install. Had no problems with booting this one.)
- vanilla 184.108.40.206 (same as above but this time I actually set some of the options. No problem)
- vanilla 220.127.116.11 (same as above. Unbootable)
- vanilla 2.6.22 (same as above)
Any ideas, explanations, comments, etc?
I've found some info on the ramfs idea, but am still nowhere further. I've got initramfs-tool installed, and I did a reinstallation of them through aptitude, but still no luck.

Sorry, I know it's too late for the answer, but I was having the same problems today with Debian Lenny and I found this post in first google position, so I'll post the answer here so that more people could solve this problem
Just do this:
# update-initramfs -u -k 2.6.28
I don't know if it's correct or not, but I also made the same changes to the current kernel:
$ uname -r 2.6.22-1-686 # update-initramfs -u -k 2.6.22-1-686
Hope it helps
