Another linux Newbie. I saw this exact problem in the archives. I have installed Debian Potato 2.2r2, I recently upgraded a few apps, and now the machine freezes during the boot sequence, with:
INIT: Entering runlevel: 2
Starting system log daemon: syslogd klogd
Starting anac(h)ronistic cron: anacron
The suggested solution was to enter "linux s" at LILO, then "dpkg --purge cannaserver". I have tried this, and get the response "dpkg - warning: ignoring request to remove cannaserver which isn't installed"
Where do I find the boot info, and how do I remove cannaserver?
