I followed this guide to use my pi as a MIDI synthesizer.


Everything worked well until I installed uptsart. Since, my boot screen is stuck to "random nonblocking pool is initialized"

I use a Raspberry Pi 1 Model B with RaspbianLite.

    Restore from your backup and do not install upstart. Raspbian uses systemd as do most Debian based systems. – Milliways Mar 10 '17 at 0:43

I got the same matter after installing Ustart. I had tried this but it is in vain.


I think the /etc/init doesn't have some necessary scripts or what the boot require for itself to run booting this progress.
