Cannot reboot or shutdown in openSUSE11


Hi guyz!!!!

I'm a newbie here. Can you help with my problems?
I'm having trouble wrapping up the openSUSE image due to the error I've encountered. It looks like during reboot, shutdown -r/-h or ctrl+alt+del, the system doesn't successfully go into system down.

Do you have any idea what are the causes of this error: "INIT: no more processes left in this runlevel".?


Thanks,

there is somehting missing from one of your rc.d scripts. when you get that message it is because it is trying to load but there is nothing else defined in that runlevel to load.

you can try typing 'halt' at the cmd line or 'reboot'

i did some looking and it might be a problem with your /etc/inittab

can you do a cat /etc/inittab and post it here?
also post your /etc/fstab
