Today I was prompted via the notification area that 16 updates were available. I took them (via Synaptic) after which I rebooted the system. Upon bootup grub complained about an “Inconsistent filesystem” regardless of the kernel I chose. Evidently Ubuntu ate my ramdisk again sigh
I’m honestly afraid to let apt update my ramdisk/kernel again. Before I was 50/50 on using Ubuntu for the desktop. That number has definitely slipped to around 20% now. If I setup a desktop box for someone else I might use Ubuntu, but for my own stuff I seriously doubt it. I know I’m using Feisty which is completely unsupported, but geezle. Maybe Ubuntu should think about adding a rescue kernel that doesn’t require a ramdisk, so at least you could avoid having to chroot via a livecd?
Long live Gentoo.
