system hangs on boot after updates from 2011-02-22
Binary package hint: mountall
Frankly I do not know to which package I should attribute this. Candidates are mountall, upstart, ureadahead, and libc6.
After today's updates, I cannot boot my laptop anymore. Another natty user -- nick proti on #ubuntu+1 -- also has this problem on 3 different machines. His/hers are Sun workstations, mine is a core i7 laptop. The common ground we both of us have multiple filesystems.
Boot stops after mountall is activated (fscks are scheduled, and seemingly most complete).
After rebooting with init=/bin/sh, and activating additional terminals, I:
1. on tty1, 'exec init -v'
init goes for a while, and then hangs. On tty2 'mount' shows only 3 filesystems mounted:
and nothing is stated about /var, /src, /boot, /srv, /home, and /opt.
This suggests mountall is hanging.
