    Unhappy using livecd.. apt-get... python: no such file

    I'm using the livecd to attempt a rescue of an ubuntu server...

    On this page... https://help.ubuntu.com/community/LiveCdRecovery under Update Failure

    at apt-get update my system says "bash: /usr/bin/python: no such file or directory"

    WAT?!?

    The instructions are a bit outdated, when the inbstructions tell you to do this:
    Code:
    sudo mount /dev/hda1 /mnt
    ...you should be doing this instead:
    Code:
    sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt
    (And also keep in mind that you have to replace the sda1 with the correct name for your Ubuntu root partition...)

    hrmmm VERY strange.... I did mount the root partition... sda1. The OS is there.... but no apt-get or python under /usr/bin. apt-cache, apt-url are there.

    I am 100% sure I did -not- remove those.
