I had installed the IFS driver to read my Unbuntu partition in Vista so I could grab a few files off of it. It didn't close the filesystem properly and I got dumpped to a root prompt on the next boot with a message to run fsck manually. The best part was one of the other errors that showed up when all this happened.

"apt-get is not installed. To install apt-get type 'apt-get install apt' "

I just wanted to share.

For Gutsy:


wget http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/a/apt/apt_0.7.6ubuntu13_i386.deb
sudo dpkg -i apt_0.7.6ubuntu13_i386.deb

I guess if you wanted to get the error message, then you did successfully complete it. ;)

The Apache notification is one of my favorites as well.

You get this in the recovery console. You just have to type "reboot", and it will boot up as normal. Good thing I mistakenly found that out playing with fvwm-crystal. :)

Oh yeah, I ran fsck and then reboot and the system was fine. I just like the error. It reminded me of "No keyboard detected. Strike F1 to continue."


And rfruth, please tell me you have a larger jpg of that error suitable for print out and framing.

One of my favorites is 'An unexpected error has occurred'.

I guess they don't bother to tell the user about the expected ones.

I had that apt-get install apt error too, I found it extremely funny :P That's great though.

Yeah, it turns out I was in the recovery console, so I just had to type in 'exit' or hit 'Ctrl-D' to proceed.
