The state of Debian GNU/Hurd is still painful.
So yesterday, after I reported to you about the SSH issue, the OS was
hung on the sshd process. It couldn't even terminate the process. So I
had to reset the box.
Upon reset, as expected, I ran into file system inconsistency issue. So
now I had an install that was not bootable.
The tricky part is on how to debug such states. At that point, when it
is in boot-up, I do not have a (emergency) shell. The login program
just loops and respawns. So, I've not found a way to debug these
problems. My only option is to revert back to my good working snapshot.
So do you have any advise on how to root cause these ?
