    System won't shutdown or start!


    This is NOT good. .. I think
    I'm new to linux but when the system won't boot or shutdown normally....

    When I try to shutdown or start up:

    Code:
    The system is going down for reboot NOW!
    INIT: Switching to runlevel: 6
    INIT: Sending processes the TERM signal
    /lib/rcscripts/sh/rc-services.sh: line 11: /sbin/depscan.sh: No such file or directory
    
    * Error running '/sbin/depscan.sh'!
    * Please correct any problems above.
    INIT: no more processes left in this runlevel.
    I do believe that this is a problem directly related to baselayout. I emerged it again and still had the same problem. I'm trying my hardest to get the internet working again so that I can emerge --sync and maybe that will fix my baselayout. I can't seem to get my internet running because on boot I get an error message similar to the one above and then when I try and start it....
    Code:
    /etc/init.d/net.eth0 start
    /lib/rcscripts/sh/rc-services.sh: line 11: /sbin/depscan.sh: No such file or directory
    
    
    * Error running '/sbin/depscan.sh'!
    * Please correct any problems above.
    So now I'm clueless as to what to do.

    Have you tried locating depscan.sh on your file system and creating a symbolic link??

    Umm, I think there is one.... But look here:

    Code:
    ls:cannot access /sbin/depscan.sh: No such file or directory
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 21 May 18 12:28 /etc/init.d/depscan.sh -> ../../sbin/depscan.sh
    There is an error.

    Create a symlink as Juan Pablo mentioned or copy the link /etc/init.d/depscan.sh to /sbin.

    If you haven't fixed this yet, or still care, then I have a question. Have you ran "etc-update" yet? That updates your config files and will most likely fix baselayout problem.

    I'm not quite why it fixed, but it started working again after I did emerge --update world

    For future reference, if you have problems like that again and it appears to be from baselayout, you should run "etc-update" to update your config files. You should run it routinely anyway though, to make sure and stay up to date. It could also cause system instability if you don't.
