Mainly is to resurrect dead linux, which dead by accident.
The last time I use it, I am opening 3 GUI terminal with some sudo. I am not sure but I just learning to use pushd and popd at that time, my suspicion is that what kills my lovely mint. I am using the GUI(via taskbar) to do the update, not using
apt on a terminal.
The dead linux is linux mint 18 which upgraded to 20.1.
the kernel version in details, sda6
memtest86+.bin memtest86+.elf memtest86+_multiboot.bin System.map-5.4.0-72-generic System.map-5.8.0-50-generic vmlinuz -> vmlinuz-5.8.0-50-generic vmlinuz-5.4.0-72-generic vmlinuz-5.8.0-50-generic vmlinuz.old -> vmlinuz-5.4.0-72-generic
- The fstab
note the error there no longer relevant now
- the correct file(I assume) located nested on sda6 partition, /var/foo/bar/baz. The file is missplaced by accident, including my home folder.
Current boot sequence
set root=hd0,msdos6 insmod part_msdos insmod ext2 load_video set gfxpayload=keep insmod gzio search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set=root --hint-bios=hd0,msdos6 --hint-baremetal=ahci0,msdos6 3f3fce91-72f7-403f-90d2-aaaadc657cbc linux /vmlinuz root=UUID=3f3fce91-72f7-403f-90d2-aaaadc657cbc rw quiet nosplash debug initrd /initrd.img
When I use set prefix=/subdirectory/foo, the busybox yield normal.mod, foo.mod not found.
but now yield the
init fail with /opt or /proc directory already exist. I will update these details with the ongoing action in this question.
- manually copy the file from live mint(via thumb drive) file to my sda6.
- read the documentation
- using the set prefix=($root)/var/foo/bar/ , but still goes to busy box, with no specific error. Or I can't identify which error should I mention here
I also need an assistant to navigate on
busybox to provide the necessary log.
The question is how to fix the grub2-boot loader so my dead mint can be resurrected. If I am separating my problem and my question correctly, I will form the question, How to correct my prefix on boot sequence? Somehow I am dead sure this is possible, just not know yet how to do it.
