boot hangs at "Eth0" Help! I know this is an easy question!!


I edited /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/Eth0

I think I missspelt something! and the server sits at Eth0 when it runs the network script to enable the ethernet connection.

I can't access the system to fix what I changed!
Here is my question...

How can I by pass the Trustix boot and go to a # cpmmand line so I can edit and fix /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/Eth0?

I am using Trustix linux!

Thanks.

hi,

i think during boot you can press the 'i' key to enter interactive boot, whereupon you'll be asked for confirmation before each boot script is executed. it might take a couple of tries - with mandrake 10 i've found that it's fairly sensitive to when i actually press the 'i' key!
