Bug Description

Had a wonderful running version of 8.10
intalled bootchart and now ibex will not boot.

ran
sudo apt-get install bootchart

immediately Rebooted to error message: (no other changes)
.....
running /scripts/local-top
done
begin: waiting for root file system
gave up waiting for root dev. Common problems
-boot args ( cat /proc/cmdline
-check rootdelay= (did system wait long enough?)
-check root= (did syst wait long enough?)
- missing modules (cat /proc/modules; ls /dev
ALERT /dev/disk/by-uuid/ 34232323xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx does not exist
dropping to a shell
Busy box ASH
intitramfs
_ _ blink blink

Now I have tried to use command
blkid to find the /dev but that command does not work under initramfs

I've also tried editing grub to use /dev/sda0 through 4 instead of uuid to no avail.
it never seems to find the disk.

I've also tried ls -l /dev/disk/by-uuid
but initramfs states that it cannot cd into /by-uuid

Please, thanks for your help?

Recovery seems to give the same error

Does anyone know the file structure and what or where that bootchart is called and executied and/or if I can remove it in initramfs as this seems to be the only prompt I can get to.

I can however boot to older installations.

It sounds like the initramfs is incomplete.

Could you run the following and provide the output

"ls scripts scripts/*"

Thanks

also IF there is supposed to be a script for bootchart, I did boot into another kernel and ran "sudo apt-get remove bootchart" sometime in the last few hours of toying around. It did not resolve the error that it started.

I also ran the command "exit" upon someone elses advice and was supposed to have added a rootdelay=150 but the machine never booted up.

Unfortunately since you've made changes to your system after observing this bug, it's highly unlikely that we will be able to solve it.

how about updating the initrd for the intrepid kernel from another kernel?
run "sudo update-initramfs -k <your intrepid kernel version> -u"

actually Dimitrios, that was what I had to do, I booted into another kernel,
then ran
apt-get update and apt-get upgrade, and somehow it re-wrote the initrd for
this kernel version and magically booted. Not sure how or why, but I've got
my Ibex back. Thanks for your input.
