Recovering a broken linux boot
My linux won't boot anymore, not even in safe mode, since I messed with the wireless ethernet settings. Boot hangs on an sbin/modprobe abnormal exit. Is there a way I can undo what I did by editing some boot-up file?
I'm running Mandriva 2008.1 on an Acer 5002WLMI with a Broadcom 4318 wireless chip. I've never gotten this wireless to work under Mandriva. It gave error messages on boot-up. Earlier this week, I used the Mandriva Linux Control Center to try the Windows Broadcom driver with ndiswrapper, and since then I can't boot anymore.
I can still boot from a variety of live linux CD's, so I'm thinking I should be able to comment out the offending line in some setup file, but I'm not sure where to look. Can someone give me a tip?
