Finding Module Dependencies...(Still loading...still loading..still loading..HANG!!!)
 
I am very new at linux, I really wanted to try it to get away from Windows XP. I partitioned my HD and installed Linux on a part of it (about 20 gigs). I can get the linux boot up screen where it goes [OK] and down the list and i can get Windows to boot. But during the Linux boot at the Finding Module Dependencies .....it hangs. It wont load or do anything. I then have to manually restart the computer. Ive let it go for about 1 hour and still hangs. I am very new to Linux and been looking on the web for help and its all confusing to me. Thanks for the help.

*edit* i am using Mandrake Linux 9.1 with with my patitioned Windows Hard disk, once i get to the Finding Module Dependencies it locks up my computer.

During boot, when it prints 'Press 'I' to enter interactive setup' press 'I' key (without shift). Before every service it'll ask you if you'd like to load it. It should also ask about modules dependencies. Say 'No' and check if it finishes booting.

This isnt a fix but I think its worth saying...

I had issues getting mandrake 9.1 working on my notebook but 9 worked fine. If all else fails, try another distro, maby even Red Hat, I'm a newbee too and I like both, the only advantage I see with mandrake is It comes with xine, a good movie player, so you dont have to install it your self. Maby there are other advantages but like I said, I'm a newnee.

Later,
Apolo.

Same hang for me on Redhat 9
 
I was looking for a solution to the same problem in Redhat 9 with a dual boot and XP as well. I don't know if the press "i" thing is the same in Redhat but will try it. I am also a first time Linux user, and very much want to get it up and running and learn it. I have been a computer technician for 11 years (Dos and Windows boxes) and finally now that Microsoft has an OS that almost runs well with XP, I want to learn something new. I have experience with Novell and Dos so it's not like I never saw a command prompt before, but Linux/Unix/etc. was not something I ever have been ready to try till now. Any pointers on setting up, or a fix for the hangup would be greatly appreciated.
