comment Apt-get dist-upgrade wants to destroy my Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
Further inspection reveals that there's something going wrong in the "has been fixed as of today". HTop screenshot shows how the basic services seem to have been loaded but not the init.d services. I have just checked, the scripts are still there (upstart and not), the symlinks in rcX.d too. They just don't get called at all. I enabled bootlogd and unlike before the upgrade, now it won't show any service being started (it won't even show a failure, just nothing at all). Could I do anything to fix this? Or to help you find what's broken?

comment After last update, my varnish and all services broke!
I just received a reply (from Ondrej none the less!) to a previous "startup issues" question of mine. Anyone could maybe make a connection? askubuntu.com/questions/327331/…

Hello and thank you so much for your many efforts! Could you please check if your reply is related to my question here? It really smells about "systvinit" and similar "dark side" stuff to me: askubuntu.com/questions/420753/…

comment Wireless lan connection stops working after 3 pings or after loading one web page
I have found a solution that should fix some if not all of those issues. If it could be of any use I might post an howto.

The computer is meant to work 99% without graphical UI (only invoked for maintenance), it has to establish VPN connections and other things since boot.

comment Since August I can't upgrade the kernel any more
Hello, I have installed linux-generic and also the headers. However a subsequent apt-get dist-upgrade still rips everything off. So, I tried letting it remove the kernel and then installed linux-generic and headers and checked grub-pc was installed. When I rebooted... server completely dead, not even a message or anything. I don't know where to begin to make it run again, all I can do is to restore the imgage backup I created right before trying this fix. This is odd, as I recall dist-upgrade used to NOT remove all and did not require linux-generic reinstall. And most of all, the server booted
