Exclamation 4MLinux (maybe 36 series) hangs at bootup - 'The item KEYBOARD LAYOUT is being processed'


Hi Zbigniew.

I'm running it in a VM on virt-man. It hangs at boot up at this line:
Code:
The item KEYBOARD LAYOUT is being processed
Previously, I had selected force shutdown in the virt-man settings. Maybe that broke something?

Do you know a fix?

Thanks.

Yes, that may be the reason.

Let's say that your "broken" 4MLinux is installed on the sda1 partition of the virtual disk:
1) boot using LiveCD (the 4MLinux ISO image),
2) commands to execute in the LiveCD terminal:
Code:
chroot /mnt/sda1
cp /var/4MLinux/*.xz /etc/init.d
exit
poweroff
3) now you can try to boot your 4MLinux.

I used the 4MLinux-36.0-64bit.0.iso.

No joy.

Come to think of it, I think the VM version was v37 so I guess using the v36 live image would never have fixed it?

In the end, I just copied a backup of my 4MLinux virtual machine image file to my PC. It boots again.
