Init respawning too fast after failed upgrade.
A while ago, I upgraded to woody and caused mayhem. Somehow I managed to
lose tar and a couple of other essentials. No problem - reinstall the
potato bootdisks 2.2.9 - get the base system running including tar.
So I reinstalled base on a _running_ debian system. Now I either have:
debconf asking the same questions over and over on VT 1 and looping
deinstall debconf and have an endless stream of
/bin/sh /usr/sbin/dpkg-reconfigure: No such file or directory (and)
Init 1 spawning too fast : disabled for 5 minutes
I've also lost VT 4 through VT 6.
I can't kill Id "1" unless I'm in single user mode.
Any clues ?? Joey ???
Thanks, from a befuddled
