I've been farting around and broke something (Yay! Finally!)
When I go in to recovery mode and select networking so I can then go to root, networking seems to start, but it stalls there and the file system does not mount so I can't clean up what I did by getting back to the recovery menu and dropping to root.
Anyone else encountering this?
(I will mount it manually if nobody has a solution, but this is probably something that needs to be looked at.)
