System boot hangs at system message bus
I'm loading a system from kickstart, and when the RHEL 188.8.131.52 desktop OS trys to boot, it gets stuck at system logger (but eventually fails and continues), then gets completely gets stuck at system message bus. Doing interactive boot, I can skip system message bus, but then gets stuck at autofs and cups.
One work around I've tried with success was to boot into maintance mode, and ran the authconfig-tui command, disabled the "Use LDAP" option under "User Information" section. I was then able to login as root to the GUI that way, then go back in to authconfig-tui, recheck the option for "Use LDAP", rebooted, and then logged in with my user account fine.
However, since I will be using this kickstart to load many other machines, I was wondering if there was a way to avoid doing this every time, and going to the source of the problem. If anyone has any suggestions it would be greatly appreciate. Thanks.
