Linux has stopped booting
 
I have Ubuntu 12.04 running on my PC but as of recently it has stopped booting ad just hangs on the boot screen.

I get this error message
Quote:

container-detect pre-start process (267) terminated with status 127
I am still able to boot into recovery. If it try to boot from recovery I get this message on the screen

I was removing out of date kernel headers and accidentally clicked mark for complete removal so I had to rebuild the kernel.

Your best bet to save time IMO is to boot a live cd. Save what you want to keep off of internal install to external drive or dvd media. Do a reinstall.

I say this because you said

which does not make sense to me. I have completely removed kernel headers and kernel images and then ran

Code:

sudo update-grub
afterwards and never had a problem rebooting any of my linux installs (always being sure to keep 2 kernels for menu.lst). I don't run 12.04 though.

Code:

dpkg --list | grep linux-image
rc  linux-image-2.6.32-21-generic            2.6.32-21.32                                    Linux kernel image for version 2.6.32 on x86
rc  linux-image-2.6.32-24-generic            2.6.32-24.43                                    Linux kernel image for version 2.6.32 on x86
rc  linux-image-2.6.32-25-generic            2.6.32-25.45                                    Linux kernel image for version 2.6.32 on x86
ii  linux-image-2.6.35-22-generic-pae        2.6.35-22.34~lucid1                            Linux kernel image for version 2.6.35 on x86
