respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes


I just installed FC3 on VirtualPC 5.1, upon install completion and reboot, I came up with the following error:

(none) login: root
INIT: ID "1" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes

Reading through this and other forums, it was said this is probably an X problem and to change the errorlevel to view logfiles and troubleshoot.

I changed the errorlevel in GRUB to 1 and now it hangs at
INIT: no more processes left in this runlevel

Any thoughts on how to troubleshoot this further?

How did you change the errorlevel? If you just put a "1" in the boot line, you're trying to start a RUNlevel 1. If this is the case, try using a "3" in order to boot without the X-server.
