As Arch boots up, it hangs right after it identifies the runlevel. I am using the latest beyond kernel. Here is my inittab:
# # /etc/inittab # # Runlevels: # 0 Halt # 1(S) Single-user # 2 Not used # 3 Multi-user # 4 Not used # 5 X11 # 6 Reboot id:3:initdefault: rc::sysinit:/etc/rc.sysinit rs:S1:wait:/etc/rc.single rm:2345:wait:/etc/rc.multi rh:06:wait:/etc/rc.shutdown su:S:wait:/sbin/sulogin -p c1:2345:respawn:/sbin/agetty 38400 vc/1 linux c2:2345:respawn:/sbin/agetty 38400 vc/2 linux c3:2345:respawn:/sbin/agetty 38400 vc/3 linux c4:2345:respawn:/sbin/agetty 38400 vc/4 linux c5:2345:respawn:/sbin/agetty 38400 vc/5 linux c6:2345:respawn:/sbin/agetty 38400 vc/6 linux ca::ctrlaltdel:/sbin/shutdown -t3 -r now x:5:respawn:/etc/rc.d/gdm start # End of file
yours same with mine,
Highly doubt about kernel panic.
I removed my sig, cause i select the flag, the flag often the target of enemy.
Try posting your dmesg, rosh.
Since I can't actually boot into Arch, I need to post the contents of what dmesg would put out. I just want to confirm that dmesg produces the contents of /var/log/messages.
I forgot to mention that this freezing happened after I tried to install a package from pacman (gnome network manager applet) and it just locked up.
I booted a live cd, chrooted (after mounting proc and dev from the livecd), and did a pacman -Syu. I switched to another window, so I don't know where I was during the pacman, and then I froze up ... in the livecd!
This is really strange, should I just reinstall Arch or something, where can I found out what is happening?
