Wink Manage Linux init or startup scripts. fail apt-get install file-rc. boot no more.


I was getting the hang of installing so many services..daemons and stuff..but I needed to free up this 2gig sony vgnnr160e (old)
So I went out and found what were probably good instructions. I removed what seemed obvious (no lists) using apt-get install rcconf
Easy, probably should have reboot right then but..
Then I used apt-get install file-rc
there were errors, it ended with failure. I didn't back up and I was falling in love with my setup..Still no matter what I am learning..maybe now I will back up.

It wouldn't reboot..I installed another Debian 8.1 --felt so smart, grub2 in, seeing both..thought I could find the right ini and boot files to just copy over into the original..don't know enough too stymied.
Looking for the path of least resistance..I can see the original navigating to it.. I want my Evolution back, had finally got a comfortable encryption and signing..then too much confidence.

I can make USB installers, no cd/dvd, SSD cards on this old vaio are just storage not boot..can i recover, any of it?

Sorry no logs..I have to search google for commands like "show running processes linux" ...i might be able to find logs if permissions are not to hard as I peer over from the new install to the original...

what say?

What do you want to recover?
Data is OK - but I wouldn't mess with init scripts if you don't understand them.

file-rc claims to
Quote:
This package provides an alternative mechanism to boot the system, to
shut it down and to change runlevels. The /etc/rc?.d/* links will be
converted into one single configuration file /etc/runlevel.conf
instead, which is easier to administrate than symlinks, and is also
more flexible.
I wouldn't agree with the above claim.
Have you looked at rc.local?

Yes Jeremy that is what I read I saw how the process would go through what is the norm for boot every time and just create a more static list of configuration. I can't even remember what I was hacking at (can't say it was working) but I see so much...like if your sd card is recognized you can just get the right info from it (after it has been live installed with an os) and you can edit that in..if you know how and it can show up in a grub menu..your computer doesn't have to BIOS boot from there the grub can do it.
But I don't know what I was doing and ran that command to cause the symlinks to be re-made into a new configuration..I knew as I watched it was going to be bad. But I am looking at these different flavors of the children of UNIX..I studied computer science but degree from '93 ..such a fraud in the mathematics and now tack on computer science dept. I wish I could sue. But things have come to this from back then when it was primitive like the hardware comparatively.
Today I put in a live install from USB arch linux..and wtf is all I could think. I looked it up. I see they have you build the structure onto the drive..and get the simple gui if you want..but I thought this would be a great place to start with the intention of putting virtual box on..maybe this old computer could support some vm distros..not likely.
I have also been looking at, because I have ONE 2gig USB to swap and the SD cards are come and no boot..looking at iPXE and seeing what can be done and what I am able to do..by putting distros on the other laptop..and booting (in my mind) through the router..some persistence for each somewhere I don't know.
But I am 20 years behind, didn't treat ADD so became cartoon brain..I didn't go to college to learn to program I was programming for years..it served to give me a nervous breakdown and debt.
I have looked at, and I run them hard, Debian, Ubuntu, and started with mint Rafaela (so innocent yet just as deadly)...so much instability I have reinstalled these over and over sometimes twice in a day..because I don't just watch youtube..I'm in there digging looking at what they've done..
I read the linux kernel was the last part that one man finally coughed up...then it was open source..
For three weeks with every combination I have been on priority: remote control fully a desktop both linux, network settling on right click share..you need to install windows share lol, and concluding what should be backed up as I have no room for images only shadows which is fine who has time..
Also, looking at the tools favored by each distro for working GNUpg and without compromise but really that is just for admins prying eyes, nothing exists if you are the governments target that is bullet proof. I still have and keep close the 7.1a of truecrypt and until computing power gets better I believe in it..I believe they were pushed off that project because they handed out a tool that could do what could not be allowed..truly be without the combined efforts of europe an usa crypto and resources and time..maybe never see what's inside. Now everything is a honeypot encouraging you to use the new as it is safe while saying the old one is compromised. la
The last big push was with ubuntu and if you search google and put ubuntu in the question you will get some good answers..that is a huge plus for those of us who barely know the relationships...mint from ubuntu..debian and ubuntu split and try not to mix..kde..anything with a K in front of it i don't trust.
What I did was start at the baby mint..then want some metal..but found that those first priorities because I am so..lost 20 years to the point of not knowing command line..had to move up as far as I could go to advanced UIs and GUIs.
It really is a sea an ocean to swim in..when I got treated..have meds..without thinking I went back to my friend the computer..and now there are no windows in the house..and when i mourned losing a setup I knew it was cool cause it was time to look at something else.
Also, the idea of forcing it to do what I want is gone..now I ask the distro, "how do you like to do this?" and the path of least resistance gets you time and that is so important.
Freedom on my tiny resources..no clouds, google when I had windows uploaded my entire harddrive, just the names of the files was a violation of privacy exasperating..and the internet bill..here we are capped by comcast at 300gig...of course we went way over..partly because google drive wanted to inventory my soul.
We can make our own 'cloud' and we can put headless powerful servers in a cool room..and control them through laptops from bed..we can boot any distro that does what we want the best or at least it is the way we know how..
I want much more powerful capable hardware..but as you can tell I'm not ready to use it..I learn on these 2 cheap azz laptops the other is my mom's and if she can't watch her crushes live stream or youtube some worse than dr oz shit then she is furious..so, I have to be careful with the one laptop that can boot from sd.
I don't have time to do 20 years catch up. I have to figure out what's up and stay on target..healthy paranoia..ubuntu making it look real easy to tor browser up but then not even a direct install after the software center's assing up the whole thing..now i will leave i guess the remmina that gave me remote and the easy networking and put on a new distro..oh i also used fedora, they are very thorough I am comforted by there writing style in directions and they are not cutting corners..maybe i will look at it again..but that arch..that is a wonderful way to learn and putting up the virtualbox..
Would like to serve my own mail, i would like to use linux if possible to get some independence from the crushing comcast xfinity whore..
In the past few days I have been wondering "where is the 'repository' from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil..pirate bay was no help haha

Thanks for the reply, my post was just..I wanted to tell everybody my platforms fall from under me as fast as I put them up and don't even know enough to turn back time backup..chroot to the usb so i can unmount so i can alter the layout of the drive HA..only one tool on the usb at a time..ubuntu has quit reading my sd cards..
i guess i continue until i find satisfaction..programming captivated me in 6th/7th grade on that was in about 1984..so everybody has there interests ..all of these toys..when i figure out what my priority is then ill be able to get and keep stable whatever combination of pieces ..but the knowledge of security..not getting a ad blocker that actually .json all your form info to a grifter russia mafia..might not be possible..if so then I could help clients protect what I do not have to protect..so many instructions..so little time.

Thanks again.

-----------

You won't believe it but I think I know not exactly but what did happen.
If you go to the ubuntu software download center or synaptic i suppose too...
and you are getting a really big set of software..like say 'ubuntu restricted extras' well, very quietly with all the windows i have open and nothing along the bottom to show up (i want but will not install the shiz that creates it) a pop-up message comes to ask you to agree to something about one of the packages in the bulk download...and you never see it...so the download stops half way through waiting for you and you figure anything must have happened so you stop the download...but a quarter gig of software is piled up in some queue that did not clear when you 'aborted' the download..

then moments later your working on something else like trying to get your sd card to start registering cards again and you use command like:
Try this :

Your machine is now on :

then

a) pop slowly out and then slowly in sd-card

b) type this into terminal

sudo apt-get install --reinstall udev*

then when finish then....

That's when you see packages unroll and unroll and it gets to what this time was all too familiar and starts updating that boot system which is terrible because some of the stuff is missing and it's not going to reconcile and you were just trying to run that small command...

I waited 8 hours to reboot...but when I did I reinstalled cause it was gone.

This time I caught that pop up but too late I already halted that stalled download...now im thinking what if i just uninstall from the software center..well it doesn't look like it's going to go through with it..and so when i re-run those command or reinstall to success..the boot update won't happen and get repaired and so...it happened again.

yeah i answered the questions during uninstall
ran that command again and it rebuilt the "inertd"
..so i figure wth i'll reinstall the package..and reran the command and it did rebuild again but the last 2 times it was fast..much faster to finish

reboot and all seems fine
but no sd card

anyway, at some point maybe? i can't see it..usually lists the multi sd card reader device..i don't see it anymore:

You could have detected the presence of the device in all that verbiage by
Code:
lshw | grep '5-in-1'
BTW It's considered good form to give a link to large amounts of text...

..of course lshw | grep '5-in-1' how could i forget..
but last night I was going to pass out..my brain no longer asissted and that is when I start making 'learning situations' and punching in to reformt /sb2 i hit /sb1 I stopped it fast but i can't believe it but i did it again after pulling it out of the ditch last time..all the boot and more is deleted..

so i got the 'boot repair' and live installed it 3 times..twice because i thought ubuntu would install it as boot..then unetbootin did it..
I have been letting the first option 'check and suggest' run for a couple hours now..that means it aint gonna happen...so i will look around in the tool to see what might be done..i was sticking with my ubuntu.

there are instructions about how to use dd to make a bit for bit copy of like usb and sd (in the old days we called this disk nibbler..didn't care if there were errors (copyprotection) it was just copying ones and zeros ...

and I see you can make .iso and .img and another type used by virtualbox..

tell me, is it possible to take this copy and place it at an address out on the hard drive and then point a loader like from grub2 from it..because i have to reload every single time anything i want to do from the 2gig usb...which if i can copy and without too much knowlege stick out there and point to it..add it in the menu..i haven't even used the grub menu yet..

also I was thinking about dvds and even USBs where we have virtual dvd from software but..I can't (maybe you could on windows with powerISO) create a drive with a letter and it be treated as physical..could be written to as you would as you went the process of making a live boot usb or dvd/cd.. then you could get that image and as I said above stick it out under a specific address and enter into the menu and have it as long as you want...I don't see any software that emulates virtually a dvd drive or usb drive like that but I want it..not much call for it? would be if you only had one almost broke 2gig usb no dvd and I think my problem with sd card was tarnishing contacts..but not yet proven..

and I had mentioned and really into the idea of being able without bios help getting the info from the sd card and through the menuing process put a call on it and it will be just like a live usb..i have a 16gig card on that..but can't use it as a target nor boot from it...but could be.

im going to let this utility post my 'problem' and try to irc with somebody...don't know the scheduling..but i know when the meds wear off the cartoons come back on right away from now on.

well i went ahead and got it:

http://paste.ubuntu.com/12315747/

it looks both not so bad and bad to me..as I believe it is repairable but not by me.
I don't want to fiddle with any tools...

where should i post so somebody who knows this one can let me know

Oh it says..auto repair will remove this and that..and put it back
I had things to do so I let it run for over 2 hours...it wasn't going to fix it.

You appear to have moved on from init scripts to multi-boot.
It's no longer clear what your specific problem is.

It's more of a situation than a problem. You are like aged wine..and I am the rain for next seasons grapes...I don't even know command line commands you know them for different distros and the old ones that have come be relaced with new one..you know how to do what I imagine and I can only imagine it.

I have a tails SD card with persistence I want to do some business on..If I could implement my thought which was to copy it 'bit nibbler' style as it is encrypted and a mess on there..it could be added to a beginning address deep out into the drive and called correctly by our master grub2..because tails has requirements, bare metal, then a kernel with no tricks, and then control to itself..what I describe is exactly that..It will think, potentially depending on how it takes stock of its environment, that it is running from usb drive..and my little persistence hanging at the end. Then I could do the business I don't want to do like with social securiy and stuff off the clearnet but I need that bit of persistence..I had to go to that computer I don't really have access to and make the 2nd copy of tails to the sd card..you know you have to make a copy from the original before you get the persistence...so as I cannot boot here with it, and making an original will get me back to having no persistence I'm stuck. But if I could have some virtual tools that could receive the first live install of tails..then from launching that (you can't run tails in virtual machine tho know tht upfront) make the 2nd with persistence then take the dd / bit nibler and put it in the spot and call it from the boot menu I could be off the clearnet..and that is just one and a couple things that I am seeing..because the way it is I am bound by hardware and also the storage you have to buy that it uses..when I think it's possible to get out of that with some smart virtualization software.
Maybe I can make the first live tails on usb...then copy it back if it will not error as it protects itself through the password..then launch it in a virtual drive as iso or img then make the second copy to the usb drive to have it and persistence..but further I would need that copy to be on the hard drive because the one usb i have gets updated 2 and 3 times a day between 2 machines and fails.

but for now, I can't boot my ubuntu..and I am so late to the party as I say, I know it can be repaired and I should have/could have been able to do it pretty quickly but I am not that advanced...so I use the only thing I have right now and that is the browser with the repair usb.

I got 200gig of hard drive sitting waiting to take the job and no software management.

ps i looked at your blog and twitter and fb...well one point, i preach to you only a little and not exasperate you...but it is a good point in your personality you know how to compromise and are willing to believe at least to the point where a deal can be struck..that's how business is done afterall. But I saw you talk about google 'do no evil' google. Please hear me. Corporations are people but they are not subject to death. That means they gain power forever unlike a real person who must die..marie curie, einstein..they have to go. But this is what you must remember and apply as the truth. Corporations have no conscience. The rule by which they operate is singular it is to, at any and all cost, increase profit. It's no argument that there is another rule..but really it is only the flip side of the first rule and that is to do whatever it can to hinder and block anything even suspect of causing profit now or in the future to be reduced. Including hiring lawyers who are lobbyist to write laws that are inserted word for word into bills that become law which restrict the power of anyone and everybody and any other corporation to impede them from the only goal: more profit. Microsoft will come around to see what you are doing and also to see what talent you have on your teams and it will take notes. As IBM was to bill gates Microsoft is now to you and us all. The owners of the corporation are sitting in the sun and they are not considering what their assets are being used to do..but the money keeps coming. The corporate personage on auto-pilot does its job..the one rule..if the profit is greater than the fine...then break the law..perhaps you won't even get caught..because unlike a man this person cannot be sent to jail.
I hope you don't forget because it can jeapordize success or slow it down. Just allow yourself to assume there is nothing on there mind or in their heart but one thing and that is the corporate goal..increase profit with regard to nothing else and use its increasing power accumulted by a person that cannot die to stop and hinder by law or breaking the law anybody it may correctly or mistakenly identify as a threat to profit and the goal of increasing profit which is ultimatley power.
