Like a previous post, I also had big problems after the .39 update. Pluto would not work anymore and would fail during bootup. I also tried to reinstall from the kickstart disk exactly the same way I had originally installed Pluto, but it would keep failing after the reboot. This last time I did the install, I unplugged the core from the network so that it would not receive the new updates. This installed ok, but I am concerned about updating it. This is also potentially a big problem for any new users that are attempting to install Pluto for the first time. It will fail after the first reboot and this will drive new users away.
The failure I keep getting seems to stem from the pluto-install-scripts not installing and everything else failing do to dependency breaking. For example, after the first reboot, I get the error:
INIT: Cannot execute "/usr/pluto/bin/Report_DCERouter_Status.sh"
several times before it states respawning to fast and it will wait for 5 minutes. Then it repeats.
Can somebody at Pluto please address this problem? Is this a known issue? Since my account reportedly has problems accessing Mantis, I am unable to see if this problem is being fixed.
