Unhappy Fedora 9 Hangs during Booting itself


Hello,
I installed Fedora 9 in my PC, I use Pentium Dula Core, my PC motherboard is D102Ggc2 (EM64T), with an on-board graphic card. Installation was successful with no error in any package.

Whenever i try booting, Fedora initializes & it shows a Graphical progress Bar(Loading..) and the mouse pointer on screen with "Show Details" as the only option on screen.

On viewing the Details, i saw initialization was going correctly and almost at the end of progress bar, it showed an error:

FIRSTBOOT ERROR: Module language does not contain a class named Moduleclass ; skipping

The System hangs after this Screen & ends up with a Cursor(with no loading Symbol) and a Blue Screen.


Following is the list of services for run level 5, i listed out by using run level 1, if it is of any help.
NetworkManager
acpid
anacron
atd
cpuspeed
crond
firstboot
haldaemon
irqbalance
kemeloops
libvirtd
mdmonitor
messagebus
microcode_ctl
openct
pcscd
restorecond
setroubleshoot
udev-post

I don't know where the problem is & wat to do, please help!!

I suspect the problem is with firstboot, boot into runlevel 1 and disable firstboot:

Code:
chkconfig --level 5 firstboot off

I'm not sure what could be causing this.

You could try booting into single user and have a look through /var/log/messages for any clues. (or pm it as an attachment to me and I will have a look through if that helps)

I've had a good look through your log file and I can't see anything obviously wrong. I'm not sure what to suggest, as I'm no expert. Maybe it would be worth posting a message on fedora-list and see if anyone can help. There are many more experienced people on there than me.

Firstboot problem

Firstboot is a configuration script (/etc/rc.d/init.d/firstboot) that runs only once after a system has been installed.

Here is a comment straight from the script:
Code:
# Short-Description: Starts the firstboot configuration program
# Description: Firstboot runs the first time a machine is booted after
#              installation.  It checks for the existance of an
#              /etc/sysconfig/firstboot file.  If the file exists and
#              contains RUN_FIRSTBOOT=NO, firstboot will not run.  Otherwise
#              firstboot will be run.  If /etc/reconfigSys exists or if
#              "reconfig" is provided in the kernel boot arguments,
#              firstboot will run in reconfiguration mode.
It looks to me like your install was incomplete. Maybe your install media was corrupted.
You could try to boot without the Firstboot script. I don't know if that would work though. You would have to go into interactive mode by pressing 'i' when prompted and then to type 'n' when asked if you want to run Firstboot.
Or you would have to go into 'single user mode' and edit the following file: /etc/sysconfig/firstboot
from <RUN_FIRSTBOOT=YES> to <RUN_FIRSTBOOT=NO>

The question is though if you want to go through all that.
It might be easier to re-install possibly with a different install-dvd.

Good luck.

The Media used, DVD, was perfectly fine, in-fact it was checked with 2 different softwares also.
Installation was 100% successful, with no errors in any package, that much i can say.

I tried doing as you suggested, ,i went to path /etc/sysconfig/
However, suprising to me, there was no file named firstboot.

So should i separately dload it nd put in in the directory? If yes, can u please provide me a link from where i can find?

If the firstboot file wasn't there I wonder what else might be missing. The install shouldn't take more than 20 minutes or so. Have you considered a clean reinstall?
