Server :: Getting BusyBox V1.1.3 Built In Shell On Reboot?
Jul 30, 2010
We rebooted the server and getting:
BusyBox v1.1.3 (Debian 1:1.1.3-5ubuntu7) Built-in shell (ash)
Enter "help" for a list of built-in commands.
When we boot from the live CD to run fsck manually, it cannot find the hdd partition. It's using Lilo boot loader.
As far as I know the power went out once and my computer might have been on - now Ubuntu won't boot correctly. It boots into 'BusyBox v1.15.3 (Ubuntu 1:1.15.3-1ubuntu5) built-in shell (ash)'.
Code: mount: mounting /dev on /root/dev failed: No such file or directory mount: mounting /sys on /root/sys failed: No such file or directory mount: mounting /proc on /root/proc failed: No such file or directory Target filesystem doesn't have requested /sbin/init. No init found. Try passing init= bootarg. BusyBox v1.15.3 (Ubuntu 1:1.15.3-1ubuntu5) built-in shell (ash) Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands.
I was upgrading our lab's dhcp server to Lucid and it totally died. I have it running on a Debian recovery cd right now. I ran into a bug in gtk which I seem to have fixed, but now I have more serious errors. If I boot without a CD, I get dumped into a busybox shell after the machine fails to boot. From the live CD, I tried dist-upgrading again and it dies trying to build and install rsyslog with a broken pipe error. I am at a loss as to what to do from here short of reinstalling (which is the last option as this server has a lot of custom configs on it)
2 days ago I turned my computer on and I could not enter to desktop as usually. The computer showed a message on a black screen that ended with: BusyBox v1.13.3 (Ubuntu 1:1.13.3-1ubuntu1) built-in shell (ash) Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands. (initramfs)
I couldn't do anything else. I don't want to loose my not backed up info. I googled the error and I found that I could boot from a live cd so I downloaded Ubuntu 10.10 and boot it from livecd... Now I am running firefox from livecd trying to fix this error. I note that /dev/sda1 my main partition is not mounted, so I have tried to mount it from gparted and from terminal and I am unable to do it... I don't know if the error I am getting on when booting is because of sda1 is unmounted, I found a similar case here [URL] but "bcbc" user recommend me to open a new post.
i was trying to figure out a way to write my own linux commands.. in fact i wanted to write a shell script to simulate an already existed linux commands like 'cd','ls' and'adduser'i just dont know the language of scriptting and even doesnt know the steps to make a script
Prior to posting this I entered search arguments, "Busybox," then "initramfs" to attempt to find another user who may have experienced the same thing; if the solution is imbedded in the message threads, I must have missed it. On hand is a Ubuntu Server 8.04.3 installer CD. What works: Installs to a Mac Pro under both Parallels, and then under Fusion both were successful first try.
Install to a newly purchased 2 gig Acer Aspire One seems to have succeeded, but upon launching from Grub, Busybox/initramfs intercepts and halts the launch with an error I don't understand:
The new Acer-PC Aspire One was partitioned into four 80 gig partitions using the Paragon software to do the partitioning. XP is on the first, and Ubuntu Server on the next 80 gig partition. Install was "successfully" done from a Lite-On external CD/DVD over USB.
During the install I changed the default name from Ubuntu to something else (probably a bad idea), and I naively entered "/" root to answer the mount question (finding nothing to tell me what to do). Ubuntu required a disk driver choice from a long list - finding no reference or guidance as to what to enter, I naively entered IDE Generic, and it took (I guess it "took").
FWIW the Ubuntu installer didn't require me to indentify the mount entry or the disk driver during installs on my Mac (Fusion/Parallels).I did connect the Internet during the install. I did checkoff/install LAMP during the install from CD. Goal: To use Joomla in a mock server environment.
I am using ubuntu10.04-server 64bit AMD with fluxbox. After I ran Matlab in a shell (without GUI) the shell does not display characters anymore, but will execute any command, I just can't see the characters that I'm typing.. I use aterm and xterm, does anybody know why that is, am I missing a package?
I have installed powerdns and powerdns recurser with the mysql backend. everything is working fine when I add a domain let's say www.test.com to the database and do host[URL].127.0.0.1 pdns returns the A record.Now what do I need to do next so that this dns works on the internet.I registered two nemservers ns1.mydomain.com and [URL]..at godaddy and set them to [URL].. is not working it seems like the dns server i built is not working from the internet.
my boss wanna to built an Server Environment can be load about 5000's ppl online in the same time now there r have one server: Inter Xeon E5504 2.00GHZ 8GB memory , if i used apache system is redhat, how many can it loads.
I've seen many posts about setting up VPN's but my doubt goes further. I just need access to the local network of my office from a Windows XP (which of course is outside the LAN). I would like this PC to have access to the whole LAN, but what I really need is it to access to an Ubuntu Server (e.g. 192.168.0.10). The router is a Netgear DG834, which has a built in VPN functionality. So, is it enough if I set it up? Do I need to install any VPN server in Ubuntu? What if I want to access to another computer in the LAN? Where should I start?
Just set up a 10.04 server today, running with dancer-ircd and dancer-services packages to create a private IRC server. However, there's a requirement to log chats against users/host/IP address for future reference. I was wondering if there was a built in server side approach (rather than separate bots per channel) to log chats in such a way?
Ok so I've been all over Google trying to find an answer as to why my MPD server won't properly output over httpd. When I try to connect to it from any source, it gives me a "404:Entity Not Found" error. There hasn't been any useful info out there to solve this problem. Help please! Attached is my mpd.conf file. All my permissions and firewalls are set up properly AFAIK.
I have one server with Jboss and Tomcat installed, I have to start these servers manually everytime I do reboot the server.How I could do to start Jboss and Tomcat automatically, when I do reboot the server?
there mylaptop crashed due to extensive heat and i cant boot back to my ubuntu system. every time i try to boot back i get an error message and it only shows BusyBox this happened to me before but one day it just miraculously boot back, now that it happened again im afraid that ill have to reinstall so i went here...
here's the error im gettin
mount: mounting /dev on root/dev failed: No such file or directory mount: mounting /sys on root/sys failed: No such file or directory mount: mounting /proc on root/proc failed: No such file or directory Target filesystemdoesnt have requested /sbin/init No init found. Try passing init= bootarg. Busybox v1.15.3 (Ubuntu 1:1.15.3-1ubuntu5) built-in shell (ash) Enter 'help' for alist of built-in commands
I did the update from within 9.10 to 10.4. Now when Ubuntu boots up, something happens and it goes to busybox. I tried sitting there and waiting, but nothing happened. So I tried typing exit, and then about a minute or two later it finally finished booting.
It's real nice that everyone else is reporting 20-30 second boot times, but before with 9.10 my boot time was around 60 seconds or so, and now it's around 5 minutes. So how can I fix this? Is there a way to post the boot log here? Where would it be located at on my computer?
I installed all recommended updates as suggested by the update manager, after installing was asked to restart. During this restart I get the error message "udevadmin trigger is not permitted while udev is unconfigured. After this I am left with a BusyBox v1.13.3 [...] (initramfs)_
If I make a cronjob to reboot a server every 3 days at like 2am? This way it will free up ram, etc and cause less problems right? I know a guy that is doing this, and I'm trying to convince him otherwise.
As the name says, I'm new to Linux. I've never even seen Linux. Super noob. I have installed Ubuntu 10.04 onto a Dell Dimension 2350 P4 1.8ghz, 1g ram, GForce 4x 128mb video card running XP. I installed from a Live CD and rebooted. The screen says "finishing Ubuntu install" does a countdown and loads into BusyBox instead. This is what I see:
BusyBox v1.1.3 (Debian 1:1.1.3-5ubuntu7) Built-in shell (ash) Enter help for a list of built-in commands. (initramfs)cannot mount /dev/sda1/tmpmountpoint
If I boot from the CD I get: Unable to find a medium containing a live file system I'm stuck, I don't know many commands so step by step. Simply saying 'load grub' means nothing to me.
I've tried both the DVD and CD, the CD with both usb-creator-kde and unetbootin. The results are the same always, the USB boots, into the splash screen, I select Start Kubuntu, it goes to the loading screen. After some seconds it starts scrolling a wall of text, gives some error about not being able to write or read /root/var/* because they don't exists and end up on a BusyBox with (initramfs) prompt.
I need to install the system on a new disk (2tb) instead of upgrading because I have to send the current one (1tb) to replacement. Could the large 2tb disk be a problem? I tried unplugging all disks and leaving just the disk I want to install to, but no deal... (both are SATA).(Checked the md5sum and they both match for DVD and CD...)
Why use nash instead of busybox in initrd and initramfs? I'm just looking for pros and cons of both really (and any other applications with similar functionality). I'm currently leaning towards busybox being the better option, why redhat and fedora use nash in their initrd.
I either installed Hardy heron or its predecessor by accident, but began running it exclusively. I did it way back when while trying to create a test drive disk, and I did not repartition the drive, because all my windoze NT stuff survived. I'm now 8.04. Yesterday I had a bunch of updates to do, did them, closed a ton of windows and then pulled up 3 open office files and each, when it came up said there wasn't enough space to save all needed information as they opened. I then closed them and one hung and froze the whole machine, leading me to do a reset. This is BEFORE rebooting from the updates.
Now when I boot into Ubuntu (I'm dual boot) I start to get the opening Ubuntu GUI screen but then get :
BusyBox V1.1.3 (Debian 184.108.40.206-5ubuntu12)built in shell (ash) line followed by:
I'm essentially a total noob, I've rarely used command line and not for a long time. I made a version 11.04 live disk, and it says that the file system is clean, but will not show me any of my old files, only the NT files and directories. I have a ton of unbacked up important data in Hardy Heron so I don't want to do an install from the 11.04 CD.
I've read several threads so far, and can't seem to find anything addressing this that I understand. The drive is a 160GB drive on an HP Pavilion dual core that has a 154GB NTFS boot partition, which is where I'm sure the Hardy Heron files are, and a 6GB FAT32 HP_RECOVERY partition that windoze lists ad drive D (the NTFS is C) The live disk says the FAT32 partition is /dev/sda1 and the NTFS is /dev/sda2
Where should I start? I've seen stuff about booting into recovery mode, but that isn't an option when I boot from the hard drive, and the only older ubuntu disk I have is for 7.something and generates "defective CD" type error messages.
I've got Ubuntu 11.04 on a 40G hard disk in dual boot with a Windows XP on a 300G hard disk.
I've got back data with an USB key from a broken Windows Seven, then I've shutdown my ubuntu, but it has difficulties to stop (a mp3 player, which doesn't work well, has already damaged my Ubuntu previously). Then my Ubuntu doesn't manage to boot : it launches "Busy Box" with "initramf". When I boot in recovery mode it fails to boot something at 5s then it tries to launch something constantly.
I've launched a live CD in order to recover my data, but when I try to mount my hard disk I get :
I've found this link about this problem : [url], but it's too complicated for me.
I just want to recover my data, a system reinstallation wouldn't bother me.
I have a Linksys WRT54G with the Tomato firmware on it. So the system running on the router is Busybox 1.14., which as far as I know is Linux-based. I want to update the busybox to the newest version, using ipkg which is the only package manager it has installed on it. By the way, I use telnet to access the router. So I use # ipkg install (the url to newest busybox release) but at some point it stops and says:
mkdir: cannot create directory '//opt/usr/': Read-only file system
so what can I do? How can I make the filesystem read-write?
It is just a question regarding ISO and the lack of -o loop or function of busybox.One can custom the ISO of debian-installer and make a syslinux config file having : vmlinuz of one normally running installed Debian distro, and keep the initrd of the iso regular debian-installer.I think it may be conflicting the vmlinuz kernel version and the installer of initrd.I am learning, so it may be completely wrong or kernel panic.
I'm trying to configure an embedded device to run telnetd (yes, I know ssh is more secure - it's a backwards compatibility thing!) but it doesn't ask for my password.I've tried getting telnetd to run two ways:1) By adding the following line to /etc/inetd.conf:
Code: telnet stream tcp nowait root /usr/sbin/telnetd telnetd -i 2) By running telnetd as its own service with a pre-prepared init.d script that just runs
I am building a floppy linux distro and have compiled a custom kernel, toolchain, uClibc and busybox. It all fits and boots but says "Failed to execute /busybox attempting defaults" /busybox is executable and should have the shared libraries available. I created both a dynamic and static hello world program and nether will boot as init. The root fs mounts without issues. What is the problem? (Sorry, Do not have the log since this is a different box) (May try to get it over serial console)
i find myself in a situation very similar to here. [URL].. when i try use boot a live disk off my flash drive, it gives me the same issue. right now, i was just wondering how i would be able to get all my files off of my hard drive and onto an external drive so i may just format and reinstall everything on my computer.
any tips on how to do a simple copy over through the busybox or intramfs?
I'm recieving a BusyBox v1.13.3 screen after attaching my 2nd sata-harddrive. I bootup the pc, but can't get to the login screen because of this message: Gave up waiting for root device. Common problems:
-Boot args (cat /proc/cmdline) -Check rootdelay= (did the system wait long enough?) -Check root= (did the system wait for the righ device?) -Missing modules (cat /proc/modules; ls /dev) ALERT! /dev/disk/by-uuid/bf2ed1f9.... does not exist. Dropping to a shell!
It seems one thing to do is to edit my /boot/Grub/menu.lst but I don't have that file! Even with the command: gksu gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst it just opens up an empty box. Note, the 2nd hdd (sdb) has to be removed to properly boot into Ubuntu to browse my files.
Starting a live-cd (9.10) and mounting the /root partition from sda method doesn't work either because the partiton is not mountable in Palimpset due to it not having a any readable data on it! ps. going to try and get into the Grub Loader during bootup and see if I can add "all_generic_ide" to the end of the assigned /root line. Will get back in a bit.Grub screen doesn't even appear if I attach the 2nd harddrive so can't get into that.
I have tried numerous times to install ubuntu 10.04 through a CD and it always fails to boot. I get a message similar to this one: "BusyBox v1.10.2 (Ubuntu 1:1.10.2-2ubuntu7) built-in shell (ash) Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands.
I have ubuntu 9.10 installed at the moment, and when I update it to 10.04, through update, I still get the same message.
If I were installing from a cd like I was, I could MD5 test the ISO I downloaded and check the CD for defects, but what about when all I'm doing is updating from the update manager?
I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 i386 on a K9M6PGM-2 mainboard with an AMD Phenom Triple core @ 2.3 gig. I have 2 gig of RAM and Lucid is on a 320 gig HDD, /dev/sda1 shared w/Win XP. I have in the SDC position an 80 gig with Ubuntu Karmic. Long before the Widows was installed this problem annoyed me. My hope was that by wiping GRUB out and rebuilding it from the Live CD that this problem would be fixed but after several boot process' the problem ihas returned.
When I boot into Karmic and look at /sbin I find the file init but of course cannot open it. Is there any way to fix this?
The nachine might boot into Lucid 3 or 4 days in a row with no problem and then refuse to boot anything but WinXP or Karmic. It seems not to be the GRUB as Wendoze and Karmic boot as expected.
At the /dev/sdb I find;
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/sdb1 * 1 9327 74919096 83 Linux /dev/sdb2 9328 9729 3229034+ 5 Extended /dev/sdb5 9328 9729 3229033+ 82 Linux swap / Solaris and do not know the origin of the partition.
recently attempted to upgrade to Lucid Lynx but it's not booting up. it just shows "Gave up waiting for root device" and drops to BusyBox. waiting doesn't do anything. i see the GRUB options but none of the 3 10.04 LTS's boot up. i've read a number of threads but i don't think my Ubuntu drive is being read. i say this 'cause cat/proc/partitions doesn't list my Ubuntu drive/partition. Also when booting up in the Live CD, GParted only lists the Windows partition. neither does sudo fdisk -l.
issue is with 10.04 installed via wubi on a xp pro ntfs drive.Have setup a new installation of 10.04 and been running it a few months.Update Manager came up and I said ok.Then after rebooting, this is what I get and I have found many SIMILAR but CONFUSING threads, so I don't know where to go from here and how to fix it.Grub flashes, and then this is what I get:Mount is denied because the NTFS volume is already exclusively opened.Use the fuser command.
Could not mount the partition /dev/sda1 run chkdsk /r (filesystem = ntfs, error code = 16)
