Re: ibook troubles after dist-upgrade

I solved the problem that /proc was not mounted.

The reason is the file "keymap.sh" (part of console-common, version 0.7.22), which in the subroutine reset_kernel() in a loop

- mounts -n /proc
- executes sysctl
- and then umounts -n /proc

with the result, that

- the first mount outputs "/proc is already mounted" and
- the umount unmounts /proc

I commented these two lines (25 and 27) and now this works.

As for the other problems,

- alsa still freezes the machine
- X comes up (seems to have related to the /proc problem)
- Snooze works

In fstab, I have (like on all my x86 machines)

What the heck...?

I have

none	/proc	proc	defaults	0	0
but I don't expect that to make a difference? You may have to boot with
init=/bin/sh and start each init script manually to see what's going on.

Hm. How do I know the order of scripts like checkroot.sh etc? The rc2.d/* files are clear, but the others...?

Whenever I've had to boot with init=/bin/sh, I did something like

for i in /etc/rcS.d/S*; do $i start; done

afterwards for the rcS scripts and then switched to runlevel 2 normally.
