Fedora 7 booting stops at "Enabling local filesystem quotas"


The system boots ok until the point of "Enabling local filesystem quotas". I wait about half an hour and it is still there.
It works last time. I may delete some file in /root/ directory last time. Is this the reason?

In the text mode, it says:
rc.sysinit: line 859: 1247 segmentation fault rm -f /var/lib/rpm/__db* >&/dev/null

After deleting this line, it still does not work.

So what did you delete? The quota files? If so, does initialising them again solve this?

If you boot in text mode now, does it show *another* error or not?
If not please post the output (in BB code tags) of 'sed -n 840,870p /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit'.
(BTW, while not fatal, the glob is too "greedy": it should read "/var/lib/rpm/__db.00?" instead).

I use Fedora CD to load the system. It seems I do not delete any file.

It shows the same error. I will reinstall the system. This may be the best way to do.

That may be the best. Good luck with it. BTW it may be good to keep a log of changes so you can read back what you did.
