a slight departure from the scene
Unfortunately, one of the users was using my AS255 earlier this week and it
died a horrible death on him. Entire file ssytem corruption :(
He was creating a CD image, ... machine died, he couldn't bring it back up.
Aboot boots, but can't get access to the /etc/aboot.conf file.
I booted off the install floppies, and tried fscking the drives ..... 15 mins
later after a fsck -y /dev/sdb4 ..... a desire to go home and continue
studying for my exams was decided.
My thoughts were the large file creation that was killing the 2.2.6 - 2.2.10
(IIRC) kernels, but it ws running 2.2.5 which I presumed was free of this
Unfortunately, I will not be able tosee what happened with the apt, ld.so
problem reported last week, as a full reinstall looks likely.
