runlevel problems on boot
I'm running PClinux 2007 and it was alright.. tried to download some debian packages but it didn't work and i found out that dpkg is not installed .. so i opened synaptic and installed dpkg and it showed me that some essintial packages will be removed , didn't know what to do so i said to my self , if it's in synaptic then it's all gonna be alright and notihing will get messy..
i hit apply
after the installation complete the screen goes black and the system reboots.
when GRUB loads and i enter linux , it takes me to verbos mode and i have to enter runlevel..
i read some topics about it and i tried to enter the whole runlevels that is described here in LQ but nothing works.. the all say:
INIT: Entering runlevel: X
INIT: no more processes left in this runlevel
and the booting stuff says that no initab file found
what can i do to get to desktop and teke my files , i dont care , i can reinstall the system but the files is what matters.
