- - Is the broken system the same architecture as the running one?
- - Is the broken system a Debian installation?
- - Do you have fakeroot & other chroot utilities installed?
If is OK by now, you can mount the broken root partition on, let's say,
# chroot /mnt
Mainly, this is the idea for accessing a broken system, after chroot
log you in the mounted installation, you can issue command as you would
on a working system.
Of course, you are more than welcome to google the problem a bit, since
my email is far from accurate or complete. I'm just taking you
somewhere, but you'll have to read the map :)
Hope this helps,
