Hi everyone, thanks for reading.
I have a triple boot system on a new work computer, my old computer was Linux Mandrake 9.2 (kernel 2.4.22) and I really liked it, so I installed it as one of my os on my new one. I installed it from the same CD set, but I chose a few different options as my last one, since I couldn't remember exactly what I picked last time.
However I don't really know that much about Linux.
My last computer had the following choices in LILO:
My new one has these choices
With linux-secure being the default.
However, when I boot into linux-secure (which sounds good to me, but I don't know exactly what makes it "secure"), the normal boot up screen appears up to the point where the screen would change from the text on a black background, to the blue screen with the progress bar. Instead, the screen simply goes black (monitor does not shut off or go into sleep mode).
When I press CTRL+ALT+DEL, the computer will go into its shutdown sequence of text on a black background indicating what services it is shutting down.
After announcing what its version is, one of the first messages is:
Stopping dm: Stopping display manager: [FAILED]
So from this I assume display manager is for some reason, not starting up at all.
When I boot into regular "linux" and not "linux-secure" everything works fine.
Please, help me, how can I fix this or, if not fix it, remove this "linux-secure" bit?
Thanks very much.
