I am running Ubuntu 11.10 i386 on a laptop. I recently upgraded linux generic kernel to 3.0.0-14 with a PPA (eugensan/boiler): I actually was looking to install just one piece of software ("unison"), but I got carried away and installed all the updates the PPA was providing, including the kernel (silly of me, I know... ,I'll sure think twice next time)
After the upgrade, at boot time the system complains with:
disk drive for /run/shm is not ready yet or not present"
and a similar message for
I can still boot by opting to skip these filesystems. However Chrome will not work now unless I enter the following commands:
sudo mkdir /run/shm chmod 1777 /dev/shm
I reverted back to the previous kernel (3.0.0-13), removed the PPA and searched the web quite extensively, but to no avail.
I also checked
/etc/fstab and this is what I have:
proc /proc proc nodev,noexec,nosuid 0 0 /dev/sda1 / ext4 errors=remount-ro 0 1 UUID=c79075aa-eb63-43bc-ab8f-12eb26bfcfbd none swap sw 0 0
If anybody has any suggestion on how to fix this, it would be greatly appreciated!
