ubuntu wont boot - initramfs
everything was good until i changed a file in /etc/init.d
I would think that if i changed the file back it would be fine but I cant figure out how to get to /etc/init.d. when the OS boots, i get to (initramfs) prompt. how can i fix this? the actual OS not on the raid.

You should be able to do it with the Ubuntu LiveCD. Boot the CD, create a mount point for your root partition, mount it and open a text editor as root (sudo gedit) and navigate to the file to make the changes.

I run my update manager via 'sudo update-manager' - edit things via 'sudo gedit' - etc. Though yes, when dealing with GUI interfaces, gksudo is the correct way.
On a separate note, without thread jacking, is gksudo or GTK tool? Or should it be used to launch KDE apps as well?
