My box hangs when running boot scripts


Yesterday, my Debian(sid) box stopped working i don't know why.
It hangs when it's loading the system init.d(boot) scripts...
It hangs saying eth0: Setting half-duplex based on auto-negotiated partner ability 0000


Thanks in advance,
elkrammer.

Could you provide the output of those commands :

dmesg | grep eth0
lspci
dpkg -l "kernel-image*" | grep "^ii"
uname -r

What makes you say it stops at the init.d scripts ? What do you can read just before the message you give here ?

I'd love to give you that info but as i said, it doesn't even get to the login prompt.
It stops on eth0: setting blablabla
i don't get to the login prompt.

Before this it just loads the scripts. i can't tell you specifically on what script because i have remove many to see if it's a specific script but it hangs anyway no matter if i remove a script.


Thanks in advance,
elkrammer.

Do you have a rescue disk with you ? I f yes, try to boot with it, and get a prompt. Then try also, as root :

grep -i eth /var/log/messages

Try reseating your ethernet card, if that dosn't help then try with another card, and finally, try it without an ethernet card.
