Linux is stuck in the Boot Cycle!!!


Well, I thought i was being clever, I put the initialization script for my UT2k4 server into the rc.local file of my slackware box,

I rebooted, and it ran perfectly.

Now, I can't get out of it.

The server is runnign perfectly, except for not being able to change maps, but I can't end the process!!! on my server!

Help?

EDIT:
Ctrl C does nothing.
Ctrl X displays a ^X, but Ctrl C does not.

EDIT2:
Ctrl Alt F2-9 does nothign either... since I never got to the logon prompt, I can't change to a different console?

hi,

i'm not familiar with the ut2k4 server, but the following suggestion might help ...

if the server was started on boot, i think it'll be running under root privileges, so open a console, go root, then find the process id (top, ps, etc..) and do a 'killall <process id>'.

you might have tried this already though, in which case..??!-)

edit - d'oh - i've just read your edit and see now what the problem is.... bit stumped there, sorry!!

I'd pop in a rescue floppy or CD (Knoppix springs to mind) and then open up a shell, and move/edit those init scripts until you can figure out where it's going wrong.

Cheers,

Yes, CTRL - ALT - F1--F7 usually work, but occasionally it's a different, but similar combination - I'd try adding Fn and/or Shift to be sure.

Cheers,

It's not working. I think that it's because it hasn't actually booted into linux

I guess a hard power-off is out of the question, then reboot with a rescue disk into a shell...?
