Unable to boot Fedora 5 after reboot
Hi, I'm still fairly new to linux, but this is what is happening:
I was having problems connecting to our linux box over the lan, so I rebooted with the following command:
"shutdown -r 0"
Upon reboot, I get:
/dev/md1 contains a file system with errors, check forced.
Then it gets to about 35% and just stops, no more output.
I tried changing to runlevel 3 and booting and the system runs the same file check, but when it gets to 35%, I get a bunch of output that I can't make much sense of. It gives a message, "Continuing in 120 seconds." then stops at "start_kernel". So, next, I booted the the Fedora CD, went in to the Recovery Mode, and when I got to a prompt, I ran:
"fsck -c -v /dev/md1"
It took about a half hour (I was never prompted for anything), and when it finished, it appeared to try and boot. It then got stuck at the same "start_kernel" line. I also tried going into Grub and adding "idle=poll" to the kernel, but nogo.
If anyone could point me in the right direction I would be forever grateful!!
