Hi all, first I'm not a total newb, prolly forgot more than I need to know.
Anyhow, I recently upgraded my Felicia via command line, carefully following the instructions off the linux mint blogger's site from here.
Pentium 4, 1GB RAM, e-geforce 6200 video card (worked perfectly with felicia), 22" Acer LCD, IDE drive. Upgrade seemed to go swimmingly. I finished, rebooted, and system hangs and parks at the end of the following message. I was thinking I needed to set the default init for x at say level 3; upgrade nvyg drivers, and I'd be good to go. I can only hard boot, no responses from system; ordered lines below.
usplash: setting mode 1152x864 failed
usplash: setting mode 1024x768 failed
Gave up waiting for boot device. Common problems:
-Boot arg's (cat/proc/cmdline
-check rootdelay=(did the system wait long enough?)
-check root=(did the system wait for the right device?)
Missing modules (cat /proc/modules; ls /dev)
ALERT! /dev/sda2 does not exist. Dropping to a shell
BusyBox v1.10.2(Ubuntu 1:22.214.171.124-2ubuntu7)built-in shell (ash)
Enter 'help' for alist of built-in shell commands.
(initramfs) <dead system here, blinking cursor, she's hopelessly hung.)
I cannot for the life of me see where it is or how to get an xconf anything file to edit. I can access the drive via this felicia kde. I'm eager to see how this is repaired, AND it's the important drive, main, mostly used. All my data seems to be intact just fine. The system simply won't boot. I've tried failsafe/recovery mode, no good.
I would certainly appreciate any help. Thanks in advance. Oh yeah! I used to have a different membership name here, and I forgot it, and somehow this database doesn't seem to know who I am no matter what. So name's new, face's kinda old.
