    MV 07 boot issue


    HI all. I'm using Mandriva 07 and I'm very happy with it.

    My problem is it usually takes 2 or 3 attempts to get it to boot. If I choose the 'Linux' option on the grub bootlader screen it hangs as soon as the 'press esc for verbose mode' appears. If I choose the 'nonfb' option it hangs at the 'setting username' line (I can't remember the exact wording)

    I usually then try the failsafe mode, but it hangs at the same place. That's when I go back and try nonfb mode again, which usually works.

    Anyone else here with similar probs?

    Thanks

    Paul

    My machine doesn't hang if I have my wireless adapter plugged-in during booting.

    It was hanging at the 'setting localhost' line - I presume it was looking for the network?
