I love you and hate you at the same time. If something breaks with the boot sequence, usually it involves using a live USB to fix the existing installation, which I directly did once I got a kernel panic.

Checked out the hard disk uuids (I was partitioning), tried chrooting but couldn't get further. Then, I booted again into the faulty Linux installation and the frikkin page said I had to run fsck on my harddrive manually. Did that in the handy provided terminal and guess what, it boots again.

Linux, you can't help people who assume issues, like me. I still like you though

    Linux, with maybe Ubunutu and Linux Mint being the biggest exceptions, is just not ready for the mainstream market because of factors like this. Until we have a Linux Genius bar it's always going to be like this.

    @RantSomeWhere very true xD

    And anyway, any disk issues I tend to drop into recovery mode and fsck as habit.

    @starrynights89 That is the biggest issue on Linux. It is all great, works better than everything else on the market if configured properly.

    The downside is, it requires a little software knowledge and time to do that configurations.

    Mainstream market just wants things to "work". They want to just press that power button and will do their stuff without touching anything else, and they are fucking right for demanding that. Unfortunately, FOSS concept is a little off with that.

    For example, you don't need to know how cars work, in order to drive one. Knowing it is a plus, but nobody will be mad at you if you don't.
