Code: Select all

lenny@lenny:~$ sudo apt-get purge virtualbox-guest-dkms && sudo apt-get install virtualbox-dkms
[sudo] password for lenny: 
E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'sudo dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem. 
lenny@lenny:~$

Re: kernel cleaning problemsj[nevermind]

Just an update: I just felt that the amount of trouble to recover compared to just doing a fresh install and going to Cinnamon (with the 19.0 beta) was worth it, rather than hassle. I wanted more room for my boot drive and wanted a UEFI partition too. I have a new question but it needs and entirely ...

Re: kernel cleaning problems

Yes, followed that, thank you, it's somehow failing. I've also lost use of firefox and have to use a different browser. It will boot though.

I'm not on that computer at the moment, I've got to go take care of thing and I'll come back later on to diagnose if it's ok?

I think they guy just hits the power button and also lets it go dead, he's kind of irresponsible and doesn't understand technology very well.

Re: won't boot initramfs prompt

I thought the fsck command might be needed as per the text information but I didn't know syntax.

I've got another problem, I no longer remember the root password, my friend hopefully saved it, I wrote down one but it's not right and I don't dare let the battery go dead trying any longer. Stupid me!!!

Re: won't boot initramfs prompt

Fantastic, that fixed it!

I'm guessing it corrupted it by improperly shutting it down too many times?
