svlug.org had some filesystem problems on friday night.
I did some emergency work on it and brought it back up with init=/bin/bash
from a secondary backup root partition (the main one is mostly hosed).
I got the web server and mailman/exim to work, but the machine isn't even
close to being in a normal state.
I'm planning on looking at it more closely tomorrow and restoring the root
filesystem from backup.
