Hangs on boot after interrupted poweroff
The dual boot was working – with the exception of the sound card. Problems started when I hit a key on the keyboard - WiFi button - while the pc was shutting off and the poweroff was interrupted. I used the power button to shut down.
I have dual boot setup – XP and Fedora 11 on a laptop. Now upon boot, I get the screen for choosing which OS to run. The options are
Booting either of the F11 OS’s results in only the following screen –
8169: eth0: link down
ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): eth0: link is not ready
iwlagn 0000:0e:00.0: firmware requesting iwlwifi-5000-1.ucode

There is no command line prompt. Ctrl Alt F1 and Ctrl Alt Backspace result in nothing.
I use Ctrl Alt F5 to get a login prompt and am able to login as root and move around in the directories.
In the Xorg.0.log file there is the following -
(EE) Failed to load module "nvidia" (module does not exist, 0)
(EE) No drivers available..
The last line in the /var/log boot.log file is -
Starting atd: ESC [60G[ESC[0;32m OK ESC[0;39m]^MESC[60G[ESC[0;32m OK ESC[0;39m]^M
The command rpm -qv pavucontrol says pavu is not installed.
I’ve tried booting with an Ethernet cable connected and it seems to recognize the connection. However after the command - yum install pavucontrol - the next screen says dependencies resolved, and asks if I want to download 7 packages. After y there is -
error downloading packages. – no mirrors available. The internet connection is through a Russian server.
I mounted the cdrom, inserted the distro, negotiated over to the DVD, and tried
yum localinstall pavucontrol
rpm –ihv pavucontrol
and I get the message file not found
XP boots ok.
