SuSE boot problem grub and 2.6.3
 
I installed SuSE 9.0 from ftp and then upgraded kernel to 2.6.3 with a nice config/make modules/make modules_install install

I rebooted and grub is set up to boot the new kernel. Now my grub menu has always had three options. Linux, Windows, and Failsafe. In failsafe there is a list of default boot options that come up.

If I boot to just Linux I get a few lines that fly by and then my screen goes black. I see nothing. The hard drive light goes nuts for a few though so I think it is booting, but I can't tell.

If I select failsafe I get a good boot with a few errors with sshd, cups, and acpi failing. I can then get into KDE fine and all seems basically well.

What I am trying to figure out is why I can't see what is going on in the default Linux boot.

Any ideas as to what is going on?

Thanks

i am not an expert so i jump to conclusions, as a wild guess your X server is not starting correctly.

If I am wrong, did you have any probs setting up the windows side of things b4?

2) those errors in failsafe are not errors they are deliberate minimise attempts to start as few services as possible but without changing your kernel and modules.

3) can you navigate to your /boot folder and look for a grub conf file or a menu 1st file open with a text editor and post to this forum please? We may be able to spot a glitch.
oh could you also post your /etc/fstab file?
