Hello,

What should I do, if the "device.map" is empty after the upgrade from Debian 5 to Debian 6?

Thank you.

This is one of the errors:
/usr/sbin/grub-probe: error: cannot find a GRUB drive for /dev/xvda1.  Check your device.map.
Auto-detection of a filesystem of /dev/xvda1 failed.

Open in new window


It is on a Xen VM.
