I recently was trying to install Java on my linux debian server so I can
During the apt-get install java-package (I think) it asked to update
glibc. The install seemed to go ok although it wouldn't recognize my
java path settings so I rebooted the system.
After rebooting it immediately goes to a prompt that simply says:
From that menu I was able to figure out that my boot/grub.menu.lst file
had been renamed to boot/grub.menu.lst~ and replaced with a default copy
(I assume) and my boot/initrd.img-2.4.27-2-386 file was missing.
So, any idea how to get that initrd.img file back? I could reinstall if
it came down to it I suppose but I would hope that that would be
unnecesary. Is there some new way that grub boots that doesn't need that
file any more?
