Trying to log back in, init greets with messages like
Failed to spawn encryptfs-utils-save (I don't care for encryption and my drives are never encrypted....at least, not by me - so who or what is encrypting [or trying to] and how can I stop this unathorised encrypting occurring on my hard drives?).
Failed to spawn plymouth-upstart-bridge main process - unable to execute - no such file or directory
5 virtual terminals I wasn't aware of (at the time) killed as well. Perhaps a good thing?
irqbalance main process killed (isn't that for RAID? I have no need for virtualisation and hold RAID in mild contempt for it's monumental security exploitabilities)
modem-manager - caught signal 15, shutting down... (seriously? I'm assuming that has nothing to do with my PPPoE connection, does it?)
dbus main process (856) killed - (I'm a little hazy on the dbus - and suspicious of what it's primarily used for - at least, on my machines which are full of Perl and Python and Ruby and endless catastrophic system failures)
Can anyone shed some light on any of these, or - if I'm lucky - all of them?
