As you can see (stars above), I have already stated my intention of doing
exactly that. Noone is asking you to guess, and I have noted the suggestions
and already tried 4. 1 needs retrying now I have got a functional / again.
The others willl all be tried in turn.
And I have taken in that /var/log is a likely culprit. I tried to look at it
earlier from the safety of a live CD, but could not succeed because of the UK
keyboard problem (also now solved).
