Whenever I try to switch runlevels (via init 2 or some such command), I get:
INIT: Switching to runlevel 2
INIT: Sending processes the KILL signal
And then everything just stops. Ctrl+Alt+Del reboots the system, so I assume at least the kernel is still responding, but theres no sign of init scripts running or a login prompt.
It'd be nice to fix this since kernel building is SUBSTANTIALLY slower in runlevel 5.
