No init found


Hi,

Kubuntu was working fine then I got a mssge i didn't really understand and I lost my gui so I tried to reboot. but my boot failed and I got :

Target does'nt have requested /sbin/init

No init found. Try passing init=bootarg


.....

(intramfs)

please can you advise me on how to pass init=bootarg?

NB:
My live cd was taking so long to load I gave up and loaded a live puppy linux. but that returns an error in the gui when I try to mount my hd partitions.

Thanks for your time

Sounds like you have a disk issue.
The problem is that /sbin/init is there, or _was_, but your kernel can't find it. You'd get an 'unable to mount root filesystem' error if it didn't mount.

Never mind the gui, get a console going on a live cd and run a disk check.
