Unixfreak, you say you wanted to delete something from rc.local. Other people in this thread have told you how to get to signle user mode, and my post was explaining how to delete a line from a text file using vi. If this system is mission critical to your business, and you can't figure these directions out, I strongly suggest that you follow Tinkster's advice and hire a Linux consultant to help you with this.

well..i guess only a fool can give a good answer here so i'll give it a try...

solution without the text-editor:

if you are able to get at a command-prompt ( like unixfreak@pc#):
type ( behind the ''#''): chmod 660 /etc/rc.d/rc.local
then hit 'return'

then you should be able to reboot normally and get to the graphics screen, do your editing, and make rc.local executable again.

I'm sorry that you're having trouble, but on a slightly different angle, and at the risk of stating the obvious, for future reference I would recommend that you not make changes in your company's Production environment without testing them first on a non-Production machine. Performing experiments on a Production machine should be a major red-flag, particularly if the change you are making is new territory. Again, sorry you are having trouble, but good luck getting it sorted out. -- J.W.
