To start init 2 at boot


Hi folks,

FC2

How to boot 'init 2' at start temporarily (once)

GRUB
Kernel-xxx.xxx

Highlight it and press 'e' starting another window
Code:
root
kernel /umlunuz-2.6.8-1 ro root=LABEL=/rhgb quiet
initrd /initrd-2.6.8-1.521.img
Highlight 'root' and press 'e' starting terminal (whole page)
> root (hd0, 0)

Kindly advise whether highting last line 'initrd /initrd-2.6.8-1.521.img' and press 'o' to start a new lin. Then type 'boot init 2' , press <ENTER> and press 'b' to boot

Please advice.

TIA

You need a '2' at the end of your 'kernel' line in grub for a temporary boot into init 2.
kernel /umlunuz-2.6.8-1 ro root=LABEL=/rhgb quiet 2

It worked for me.

One thing came to notice during booting to 'init 2' SWAP partition not mounted.
