Woke up an hour ago and tried to boot up bishop, my X60s running Ubuntu and was presented with this message:
Target filesystem doesn’t have sbin/init
/bin/sh: can’t access tty; job control turned off
According to the threads I’ve turned up thus far, there’s no obvious cause for this issue, which is bad enough. Worse, there doesn’t appear to be a simple, easy fix. So at the moment, I’ve got one machine burning me a new copy of Knoppix so that I can get in and see what’s going on, and I’m contemplating the application of an emergency instance of Ubuntu on top of the new workstation so that I have a potential target for my most recent desktop backup (which is less than a week old).
Not really how I wanted to start my Friday.
