    Suse 10.0 freezes during boot


    Suse 10.0 has been very good to me for months, today when booting up it kicked out of the boot splash screen to text and stopped at "Starting SSH daemon". I tried multiple times over the day without luck. I can choose failsafe during boot. This boots init3 but I can login and startx successfully.

    Any advice out there?

    The end of /var/log/boot.msg reads:

    INIT: Entering runlevel: 5

    Start X the way you do now and stop the SSH daemon from loading (Unless you use ssh ofcourse).

    To stop SSH from loading do the following: Yast -> System -> System Services (Runlevel) -> Expert mode.

    Now scroll down to sshd and stop it on all runlevels. Save and reboot without the init 3 prompt.

    Hmm, should have thought of that thanks.

    I've disabled sshd, but I'm backing up /home right now, I'll reboot when it's done.

    no joy.

    after disabling sshd it choked on powersaved. disabled powersaved and now it chokes on hal

    any other ideas? does the suse install disc have a recover function that might help without killing all the upgrades I've completed?

    Yes, you can perform a "Repair Install" using your SUSE installation media. Simply boot off the DVD or 1st CD. And select install, then do a "Repair Install".

    Also, did you perform any upgrades which might have caused this?

    I can't think of anything, I installed KRename, but that's all since the previous reboot.

    is there an easy way to look at what has been installed/upgraded and when? I assume there is a file in /var/log/yast2 that holds the key

    Take a look at /var/log/Yast2/y2logRPM for me it shows all rpm packages installed and gives the date and time.

    If you want to uninstall some rpm, just do rpm -e some_name.

    Also, did a repair install help?

    crap. 'repair install' found a problem w/ Postfix but didn't cure my boot problem.

    Is there a way to record what packages have been installed w/ YAST? I'm about ready to begin agian... unless there are other suggestions.

    Did you check my previous post for the rpm thing.

    if you take a look at /boot/grub/menu.lst you will see that the failsafe entry has a ton of options after it. Try adding one of these one by one to the normal suse entry by using grub's edit function when it loads. i.e. hit e to edit when grub loads.

    Another thing to do would be to load SUSE as normal, i.e. not failsafe, hit ESC and see where exactly it hangs.

    If none of those work, try a compkete reinstall.
