    [SOLVED] Natty hangs at boot

    First of all, im not sure if im supposed to be asking for help about Natty, since its
    a development release. Still i broke it myself so its not a Natty problem, could have
    happened in 10.10 too
    Please note: im new to Ubuntu

    Ill try to make this as short as i can:

    I (for whatever stupid reason) decided to delete Halt & Reboot scripts a while ago, keeping
    backups, but seeing that the system was still stable during boot up and shutdown, i deleted
    the backups as well

    Problem starts at initscripts update in Natty. It simply would not finish installing, so i rebooted

    Natty being in a Virtual-box, it simply crashed every time at boot, be it normal, or repair mode. I decided to chroot from a live CD and restore the 2 deleted files (note:i also felt like an idiot) and run an upgrade to be sure everything was optimal

    After all that, it wouldn't crash, but even with splash and quiet deleted i only get errors
    at repair mode, normal boot just seems to hang while starting apparmor profiles

    In repair mode i get the attached picture (too big to type it, cant copy paste)

    Searching for similar problems, i also found people saying i should chown & chmod /etc/*
    to root. Tried, but it didn't seem to work either

    I could use any help at all. Yes, i could reinstall but its a virtual PC, where is the fun and knowledge in that?

    ps:yes, i know the firewall isn't configured

    Not sure if i'm allowed to bump.
    Still haven't found anything searching around, any ideas at all would be helpful
    even keywords for searching more efficiently

    Never assume that information you find using a search engine is up-to-date.

    I don't suppose you took a snapshot before you started changing things?

    I wish.
    Tried fscking from livecd also, as was stated in other similar error.
    Did nothing

    Any ideas at all? Even getting one more error could be helpful

    Last bump i guess,
    can someone at least tell what causes a drive to become read-only?
    From what i found its usually if the drive is corrupt?
    Any other common reasons?

    Re: Natty hangs at boot

    I managed to fix this by purging runit (chroot w/ live cd)
    Then, I managed to boot in recovery, drop to a root shell with networking
    and reinstall runit (and run an upgrade to make sure)
