Need help, kernel boot blocked...
« on: 14 September 2013, 11:44:55 am »


I am quite a beginner with my Guruplug, and everything was working fine, until I lost access to it as it can't boot anymore.

The blocking point during the kernel boot is:

[ ok ] Cleaning up temporary files....
[ ok ] Setting up ALSA...done (none loaded).
[info] Setting console screen modes and fonts.
[ ok ] Setting up X server socket directory /tmp/.X11-unix....
[ ok ] Setting up ICE socket directory /tmp/.ICE-unix....
[ ok ] Stopping boot logger: bootlogd.
NET: Registered protocol family 10

After several research online, I tried booting in single user mode by adding "single" to the x_bootargs_root variable.
I don't know if this worked, but I am still stuck at the same step of the boot process.

I am not finding any way to be able to log on Linux again, and I would really like to avoid flashing my plug as I spent a lot of time seting my system, databases and webserver...

Can anyone please help me solving this?

Here are my environment variables:

Marvell>> printenv
bootcmd=${x_bootcmd_usb}; ${x_bootcmd_kernel}; setenv bootargs ${x_bootargs} ${x_bootargs_root}; bootm 0x6400000;
x_bootcmd_usb=usb start
x_bootcmd_kernel=nand read.e 0x6400000 0x100000 0x400000
x_bootargs_root=ubi.mtd=2 root=ubi0:rootfs rootfstype=ubifs single

See this thread,3237.msg9211.html#msg9211
In particular the sections referring to 'init=/bin/bash'
