    Angry Sudden Wubi Problem :-(


    I have been ecstatic with the stability of my Feisty Fawn Wubi install I really hope it gets bundled with Gutsy Gibbon

    But, today I ran into a problem. After turning on my Dell XPS M140 and booting into Ubuntu it would hang then after a few minutes bring me to the Debian BusyBox shell with the following error
    /bin/sh: can't access tty: job control turned off
    A few days ago I managed to get Compiz-Fusion along with Emerald Themes to boot up, which is the only major alteration I have made to system files.

    I know that Wubi can get temperamental when performing a hard restart, which I may have unwittingly done again, albeit indirectly. I had stuffed my laptop into my bookbag when leaving my house today, and apparently it was low on battery and still on. By the time I got around to opening it up, it was dead and extremely hot. It is after this that I found out that Ubuntu wasn't booting properly.

    I booted into M$ XP command and ran chkdsk /F on a reboot, then rebooted twice to get back into Ubuntu, but it resulted in the same problem.

    Can anyone help me please?

    If you have an original MS cd try to run chkdisk from there. Also check the logs in /tmp/zenigata.log, look for lines that mention mounting of /media/host.
