Kernel Panic: No init found.
« on: February 23, 2010, 04:10:19 AM »
I am not a Linux user but i ran into this use for a customers computer that needs the information taken off of it but i can not get it to boot or even upgrade to the latest version to get it to boot. I hope i get a responsive since i know this an obsolete version of this Linux distro
Unfortunately i have no idea what any of that is saying so i didn't even know where to search
I am sorry if this is has been answered before but i was hoping everyone will forgive me just once i am not usually the guy that posts but the information on this server is very critical
Thanks a lot in advance.

Rudy

The general concept is to boot up to another Linux CD, mount the broken system and recover the files eg using a Knoppix or System Rescue CD, or even the sme server CD, see
http://wiki.contribs.org/SME_Server:Documentation:FAQ#Rescue_Mode_Help
which applies to sme7.x but would still be applicable/useful.

I think sme 6.x had similar functionality but it probably does not matter which Linux you boot up to.
