Problem: after failed try to update "xbian-update" it's booting into recovery boot console

after failed try to update "xbian-update" it's booting into recovery boot console
So i opened programs => xbian-config => update and it says there is a new update for "xbian-update". i started to update it but i got a message that something went wrong during the process. after that i couldn't access xbian-config anymore - it startet to open it but after after a few seconds it prompted me back. i thought 'ok, maybe i should just reboot the rasperry and try it again'. so i rebooted the pi but from now on it will only boot into the recovery boot console.

here's a screenshot of it: https://abload.de/img/win_20180204_01_40_15fusb6.jpg

you can't see it on the screenshot but it says shortly above the upper line "can't find ext4 filesystem".

thing is, i'm a real dummy when using the console so i just don't know what to do Dodgy


cheers

I suppose your /boot/cmdline.txt is damaged

Could you please check this file.
When in recovery console, run

Code:
cat /boot/cmdline.txt

(probably you don't get any output)

and run

Code:
ls -la /boot/cmdline*

to check if there is any other cmdline.txt you can use.

Probably there is a cmdline.default, you can copy this by running

Code:
cp /boot/cmdline.default /boot/cmdline.txt

Btw, I'm wondering where this version of xbian-update (20180124-0) came from Huh

I searched in our repo's, can't find that version. Do you have devel repo enabled?

Hmmm, there is something wrong with your boot partition Confused

Ah, probably it's was my fault Blush, there is no file /boot/cmdline.txt.default, the correct file name is /boot/cmdline.default

... and it seems you posted faulty command response, that was confusing me completely

So, please try again copying file

Code:
cp /boot/cmdline.default /boot/cmdline.txt

Woohoo, that works - thanks. I owe you a beer.

After
Code:
ls -la /boot/cmdline*
it says there's one - or do just get this wrong?

ok, after another try of updating i got this message:

Code:
E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'sudo dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem.

but after doing what it says (sudo dpkg --configure -a) everyting is fine now

So it seems the previous update process was interrupted (that's why /boot/cmdline.txt was missing)

Anyway, good to hear that everything is fine again Smile
