    Hey webOS Folks,
    My daily driver FrankenPre2 is really cute, sitting there with a screwdriver equipped penguin, but I'd really like it to finish booting. I think I mucked it up by visiting the "Application Databases" section of Impostah where it sat on a loading animation for a minute or two before I backed out. Then over the following 12 hours it froze a couple of times and I did a couple of battery pulls. Now it is stuck on the webOS-Internals penguin and doesn't finish booting.

    I have Novacom access and df -h shows /dev/mapper/store-var at 100% and /dev/mapper/store-root at 95%
    I hope that means something to someone and I can avoid a Doctor...
    -Anyone have some ideas?
    --Thanks!

    I'm not versed in linux (although I admin an Ubuntu server for my company - luckily it 'just works'), so perhaps someone can help me figure out if any of this means anything:
    As I understand the output from df -h, /dev/mapper/store-var maps to /var
    When I poke around in there I find /var/db/main/
    If I ls -l there I get something that doesn't look very good - what with Dec 31 1999 dates:
    Code:
    root@Pre:/var/db/main# ls -l
    ls -l
    -rw-------    1 root     root         24576 Dec 31  1999 UsageDbName
    -rw-------    1 root     root             1 Aug 30  2013 _version
    -rw-------    1 root     root         45056 Jan  8 05:46 indexIds.db
    -rw-------    1 root     root      24031232 Dec 31  1999 indexes.db
    -rw-------    1 root     root         61440 Jan  8 05:46 kinds.db
    -rw-------    1 root     root      12718080 Dec 31  1999 objects.db
    -rw-------    1 root     root         16384 Dec 31  1999 sequences.db
    So it looks like the following dbs in there are potentially hosed: UsageDbName, indexes.db, objects.db and sequences.db
    What I don't know is if those are supposed to be persistent dbs or stuff that is supposed to get rebuilt when the phone boots
    -Any ideas?

    Not 'Solved', but now no longer of immediate importance to me.

    After work I was able to boot over to Ubuntu and run my meta-doctor.

    Now its time to remember how I like my phone set up - that Pam Backup was a pretty nice system way back when... Too bad HP never released that tech to the community...
