CentOS Freeze on bootup


Hi, i'm new to linux be gental . . .

I have created a new network interface eth1 (vi /etc/sysconfig-network-scripts/ifcfg-eth1. There's a reason why i did it this way, but i wont go into that. Anyway I Rebooted and the Bootup freezes at "Bringing up interface eth1". Is there any way i can get into centOS so i can delete this file and start over? Is there an option in linux-rescue.

Kind Regards
Rich

hi..

well there is an option of booting the Red hat Linux OS in interactive mode.. I thin CentOS also supports thi..

press I when after Linux kernel is loaded..
you will get options of starting each service manually.. at this point you can skip starting some services.

Also you can boot your Linux in SINGLE mode i.e. same as safe mode in Linux.
based on your bootloader like Lilo/Grub look out for bootng in single mode from them.

regards

Well try pressing I for a no. of times when the Linux OS starts loading...

Also to boot into single mode as I mentioned last lookout for help w.r.t to the boot loader that you are using.

regards

Problem Solved

Linux Rescue > 'mnt/sysimage' Yes, Then make changes to the specific file(ifcfg-eth0). Restart and boots fine.

When i ran 'linux single' this tried to install centOS, strange?

Anyway thanks for help
Rich.

One can boot normally from the hard drive. When you get the grub boot manager hit the ' e ' key and select the kernel to edit. Move to the kernel line and hit ' e ' again. At the end of the line add 1. Hit enter. Hit ' b ' to boot it. This will happen only on this boot. It does not become permenent.

correct.. I was also asking you to boot this way..
As I has mentioned that you need to boot into single mode... for this you need to follow the doc of your boot loader.. The above example talks about Grub bootloader.
