i have this problem:
when i was playing with settrans, i corrupt (demage) /dev/tty*
(or something else). When i reboot system, i got many error messages,
about permision denied /dev/console, /libexec/console-run and more,
init exited with error code 2 and then system reboot himself...
so i'm mount partition and delete everthing in /dev/* except MAKEDEV
and when i'm reboot, a got into the 'raw shell' (same shell as
was used during installation) and run /native-install again for
creating /dev/* things. When that was done, i'm reboot computer.
After reboot the system booting continue ok, but after initscripts (
starting syslogd, etc)... everthing freezed.
I don't know what i should to do to fix well-working system without installation.
(because instalation of apt-get and appliactions was fine).
Filesystem is ok and was mounted writable (probably).
(sorry, my english isn't very well)
