My Xen installation has gone weird on me and I am trying to get back to normal.
I overflowed the base partition and in my haste to delete unused files I think I deleted something important, so now the hypervisor won't boot correctly.
I've attempted to uninstall
xen-hypervisor-4.0-amd64 and all related packages, and the kernel so that I can replace them. I figured I would upgrade to 4.1 while I was at it, but that's not important.
However, now I'm to the point where after installing I'm not seeing the xen kernel in the grub menu at all, and when I try to uninstall it / re-install it I get a weird file system error, like so:
root@debian:~# dpkg --list 'linux-image*' Desired=Unknown/Install/Remove/Purge/Hold | Status=Not/Inst/Conf-files/Unpacked/halF-conf/Half-inst/trig-aWait/Trig-pend |/ Err?=(none)/Reinst-required (Status,Err: uppercase=bad) ||/ Name Version Description +++-=====================================-=====================================-========================================================================================== un linux-image <none> (no description available) un linux-image-2.6 <none> (no description available) ii linux-image-2.6-amd64 2.6.32+29 Linux 2.6 for 64-bit PCs (meta-package) un linux-image-2.6-openvz-amd64 <none> (no description available) un linux-image-2.6-vserver-amd64 <none> (no description available) un linux-image-2.6-xen-amd64 <none> (no description available) ii linux-image-2.6.32-5-amd64 2.6.32-48squeeze1 Linux 2.6.32 for 64-bit PCs rc linux-image-2.6.32-5-xen-amd64 2.6.32-48squeeze1 Linux 2.6.32 for 64-bit PCs, Xen dom0 support
Than I run:

SSH doesn't show it but I get this error in the last command:
[ 544.126457] EXT3-fs: write access unavailable, cannot proceed.
I believe this is my problem. However, my
fsck at boot, and switching to
init1 and un-mounting my file system both report 'clean'?
Thanks for the help!
