    10.1 Boot.

    I've installed the 10.1 (it's my first approach to linux).
    After installation completion, the system restart.
    At a certain point, it says:
    Init: Entering Runlevel 5
    Ingresso nell'avvio non interattivo (Entering non interactive start)

    at this point it stops with a flashing cursor waiting for ...???

    I presss Ctrl-Alt-Canc and the killall works properly.

    If during boot I press I (Interactive Mode) than I succeed to continue.
    What shall I do to have an automatic boot ?

    I think you are doing it right the first way. Just give it a min or two. It all depends on what you chose to install to how long it takes. Don't worry about interactive mode. Leave it alone and just let it boot.
    Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.

    But I left it alon for more than 5 min without success last night.

    I'll try longer.

    Thanks for your reply.

    Should not take that long. When it is booting look to the right. Do you get any that say failed? You could all ways just try to reinstall also. I know what a pain it is to do that, but may be some thing went worng in the install.

    On the right everything is OK.

    I've already reinstalled it 3 times but always the same result.

    What is strange it that if I invoke the 'I' option, then everything works well (even if it is a pain to answer yes to each command line).

    Thanks anyhow for your help and I'll let you know.

    Progress ???

    I've reinstalled the 10.1 3 times during the week-end.
    Every time I have a successfull reboot only one after installation.

    After that, It blocks again both in manual or in automatic.

    It goes in block when activating all services.

    Any suggestion ?

    I really do not know how to proceed but if this is linux now I know why it's not yet so popular.

    Could you throw up a list of your hardware? It may be you have something that it really doesn't like. You don't have any SATA hard drives or a RAID array I take it

    Thanks for the help.

    This is a list of My Hardware:
    I have the following HW

    Intel P2 400 MHz (MSI MB)
    RIVA TNT Video Card (8 Mb)
    HD 810 MB EIDE Secondary
    HD 8 GB EIDE Primary
    LG DVD Recorder
    TV Card Brook Tree chipset
    EPSON 660 Printer
    PCI to USB2 Ali Card
    USB Iomega 160GB HD Connected to PCI Card
    USB Modem ADSL
    USB Hub
    6 in 1 CRD Reader
    Realtek RTL 8139(A) LAN Card

    A part for the USB ADS Modem (driver to be loaded separately after having solved the boot problem) everything is well recognised by the 10.1.

    By removing all USB devices (not connected), the boot works properly but then I cannot enable (mount) any of the USB devices later on connected.

    Any help is much appreciated.

    Thanks again
