I hope someone will take me under wing!  Last night I had a complete
system failure/crash!  I have no way to email and can only use a phone
for help.  Right now I'm at Mom's but will be home in a few minutes to
an hour.

Iwrote down what I got when I tried to boot after the latest update..

I saw there was 12 updates so I started update manager but it didn't
install all the updates.  It asked me if I wanted to do the upgrade
and I thought it said update so I said yes...I didn't know what that
meant and was so tired I didn't realize it til later.  Required system
restart which I did but then no booting, just the message below...No
clude what happened.

>Busy Box v1.1.3 (Debian 1:1.1.3-5ubuntu 12) built in shell (ash)
>enter help for a list of built in commands
>(initramf s)

Does anyone know what this means and if it can be fixed?  If so, since
I have no PC at home would someone please call me and walk me through
a possible fix..please???

Thank you very much  cheryl  658-9290
