booting...... Need your help

Post by jeff l » Wed, 20 Feb 2002 06:41:05



HI, All

After I have changed the new vedio card in my computer, I reboot the
computer. I can see the message that computer to invoke init process
and fsck the / directory file. Everything look ok. After that, *** But
I can see nothing on the monitor ****.

The dell techenican already checked my hardhare (using hddct132.exe).
This computer hardware looks fine. The moniter and vedio card works
properly.

They told me that the problem is in the Linux operating system. The
version I have used is redhat 7.1.

I alse try to use another computer to ping this computer. But I get
the error message, " request time out", It looks like this computer
has not connected to the network even this computer is running.

Can anybody give me some hint how to fix this problem? or how can I
login in as the sigle user to chech the configuration file?

Thank you very much.

jeff

using lilo, you can log in by typing "linux 1" at the "lilo:" prompt

try looking at the boot logs in /var/log to see where the computer is
crashing.

I saw no obvious errors in the log.

Maybe it is best to change your /etc/inittab to boot to level 3
(non-graphical), then reboot as normal, login and run your X configurateur
again (Xconfigurateur or XF86Config or whatever)
