I am new to linux but am keen to improve my knowledge of this OS. I have a problem and hope someone can assist me.
I recently installed FC 4. Everything was running smoothly. I installed a particular piece of software and it to seemed to be running ok. To allow additional features of this software to run i added additional lines to my environment variables file. After amending the file I also sourced the file, i did this in different shell types, csh, sh and bash, as i was'nt sure which was the correct way to do it.
I thought this was all hunky dory until i switched on my computer today to find that during the boot process but after the line:
Starting up Hal daemon [ok]
The computer hangs.
The files that i edited lie in
I managed to get into the file structure through GRUB, but i could'nt access etc/profile as it said /profile was not a directory, i find this strange.
I am assuming the problem i have is a result of either editing the files or sourcing the files...is this possible? If i am barking up the wrong tree please let me know.
Any possible lines of attack to solve this problem would be most welcome.
