Server :: Getting BusyBox V1.1.3 Built In Shell On Reboot?

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.

Ubuntu :: Booting Into BusyBox Built-in Shell
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)'.

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)

Ubuntu :: Upgrading To 10.04 - Boot Without CD - Get Dumped Into A Busybox Shell After Machine Fails To Boot
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)

Ubuntu Installation :: Booting ... Busybox V1.15.3 (ubuntu 1:1.13.3-1ubuntu1)built_in Shell(ash)
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.

General :: Busybox/Initramfs Prevents Launch Of Ubuntu Server 8.04.3?
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:

Starting up ...
Loading, please wait ...
Check root = bootary cat /proc/cmdline


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.

Ubuntu Networking :: Accessing Server With Built In VPN Functionality?
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. 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?

Ubuntu Servers :: Built In Server Side Approach To Log Chats?
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?

Ubuntu Networking :: MPD Built-in HTTP Server Is Not Working Properly?
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.

Software :: How To Get Busybox To Handle Aliases
On a small Linux appliance using Busybox to provide the usual suspects, I'd like to create an alias "ll" that would translate to "ls -al" like I'm used to. Apparently, "alias" is not part of Busybox:

> echo $SHELL
> ls -al /sbin/sh*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 1000 1000
7 Jan 1 2007 /sbin/sh -> busybox
> alias ll='ls -al'
alias: not found

Ubuntu :: Upgraded To 10.4, And Now Goes To Busybox While Booting?
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?

Ubuntu Installation :: BusyBox V 1.15.3 Error
Last week I took up the courage to replace my windows 7 completely with Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid). The Installation went fine and was happy with it.

And then on 10th I upgraded from 10.04 to 10.10 (so called perfect 10), when the laptop restarted it showed me BusyBox v 1.15.3 message on the Boot screen.

Server :: Set Cronjob To Reboot Server Every 3 Days?

General :: New Install Of Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Boots To BusyBox?
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.

Ubuntu Installation :: Getting BusyBox When Trying To Install Natty From USB?
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...)
