BusyBox does not display any error message

Bug #196062 reported by John McCabe-Dansted
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
casper (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: casper

When the Ubuntu boot fails, it loads BusyBox. (see e.g. Bug #147535)

However no error message is displayed to indicate why Ubuntu failed to load. In fact when I first came across BusyBox, I assumed I must have booted (successfully) the alternate install cd or something.

Perhaps we should at least display the results of "tail /casper.log"?
