First of all thanks to everyone who contributed to zeroshell, specially to Mr. Fulvio for this great work.
I have been using zeroshell for almost 2 years already and in some occasions, the profile seems to be corrupted and zeroshell wont start.
The first time it happened was after I installed MRTG. When I rebooted, linux cannot even execute modprobe during startup. It cannot load drivers and everything. This prevents me from logging into the system. Looks like the profile is corrupted. What I ended up doing is format the partition and re-create the profile in zeroshell.
The next time it happened is after I installed snort on beta 11. Again after a restart, the same thing happened.
Today it happened again. It occurred after I switched to another profile. After like 5 minutes, I switched back to the original profile, and when zeroshell rebooted, it wont start anymore. Can’t even login.
I tried searching the net for similar problems but haven’t found any so I thought I’d post this problem here.
I think I had the same issue with snort. Could not find a solution even though I posted my problem here. I went back a few months due to the fact that some back ups were not working either. The only solution to your problem is back up before you try anything.
