    Boot your system into run level 1 or 3 and start disabling services. I had an openstack install that barfed after an update one time and my system failed to boot.

    It seems that this problem is hard to dedect.
    I will take action right now and will try to solve my problem all alone.
    If i was able to solve my problem, i will write it down, for somebody else that has the problem...

    to start a runlevel type init "runlevel" ie: to start runlevel 1 type init 1. youd probably want runlevel 3. it only allows the command line and networking. if networking is a problem then try 2 or 1. the second runlevel is the same but it doesnt start networking services. the first allows only root to login. to disable/enable a service use chkconfig "service" "on/off" ie: chkconfig network off
