Ubuntu 9.04 boot hangs at "/etc/rc2.d/s00stop-readahead start"
Made a stupid n00b mistake and now I can't recover. I wanted to see more info in the message logs during boot so I edited the /etc/init.d/rc file and removed the '#' before the debug line hoping that I would get more verbose bootup messages. Well, after rebooting the system hangs with the following as the last 2 lines on the screen:
I rebooted several times and it hangs at the same place.
I've tried the recovery boot, dropping to root shell to change the /etc/init.d/rc file back by adding in the # but apparently I am unable to write to the file (something about no swap available). So I can't get back into the system to change the rc file back to normal.
Appreciate any assisance in getting my rc file back to normal.
