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?
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?
