    Exclamation Failed SUSE installtion on a laptop


    Hi

    I just installed SUSE 10.0 on my friend's comp and the problem is that it just halts after booting. When the bootup process is finished it displays the message

    Code:
    SENDING ALL PROCESSES THE TERM SIGNAL
    SENDING ALL PROCESSES THE KILL SIGNAL
    I booted the comp in single mode and saw the /etc/inittab file the default runlevel is 5. What could be the possible trouble?

    The laptop is HP Pavilion DV 5118TX with SATA harddrive.

    Thanks for any help in advance

    Can you use Grub to get to runlevel 3? Is it stable at this level? Once you get to runlevel 3, try running
    Code:
    rcxdm start
    and see if this causes problems.

    System reached critical temperature. Shutting down.

    Thanks for the response and Ya you were right. Going into init3 caused problems
    The message it showed was
    Code:
    System reached critical temperature. Shutting down.
    I think that the system tempertaure might be all fine, but the threshold might be set too low. Can u help me around?

    Try running the command
    Code:
    acpi -t
    to get your running temperature. Are all of the fans functioning correctly?

    The command returns
    Code:
    No support for device type: battery
                  Thermal 1: ok, 47.0 degrees C
                  Thermal 2: critcial, 0.0 degrees C
    And how do I check that the fans are working properly?

    There's your problem right there. Your second temperature sensor is out of range (at 0&#176. It seems to be broken. I'm not 100% sure how to remedy this one I'm afraid, unless you either have some settings in your BIOS. Can you post the contents of /etc/sensors.conf if you have it please?

    Sorry to reply so late. I finally decided to boot the comp using an ubuntu livecd and I have found that /etc/sensors.conf is about 2600 lines long. What are the relevant lines I should look for? Thanks for ur response.

    [solved]

    Well I told this problem to a friend and he suggested to change the kernel boot parameters to acpi=off. That solved the problem. Thanks for all ur help.
