Suddenly unable to boot, stuck at 'Stopping save udev log'


Everything was normal until a while back, but I just booted my computer and I'm getting the screen below. It hangs/freezes here, and I've no clue what to do. Any ideas?

I'd suggest booting with "init=/bin/bash" (without the quotes)as a kernel boot parameter. Instead of starting up as normal, you'll get one root console. Some useful stuff to get going might be

Code:
/sbin/mount -o remount,rw /
export PATH=/sbin:/usr/sbin:/bin:/usr/bin;
That should give you a bare bones machine, *nothing* running. You are starting an awful lot of servers. Is this box online or something? If it's just your own box, you hardly need mysql, samba netbios, or apache unless you know you need them.

Some of the stuff that init starts is giving you issues. Where to go next depends on what distro you have. cd to /var/log and look for errors in a big file called messages, or syslog near the end. Also run dmesg |less. Post anything suspicious. (100 words max, not a massive copy/paste please).
Try 'man systemctl' ; if it's there, read it.

Yeah I do need those services. One thing I should point out is that at the point where the system gets stuck, I can CtrlAltF2 into the text console, login, and then I'm able to simply 'startx' to get into Cinnamon. Strangely, it shows 'Software Rendering Mode' but still operates in full resolution unlike my previous experiences with Software Rendering Mode.

'dmesg | less'

These lines might be relevant to my problem.

Here's a segment of /var/log/syslog, Sorry I'm not really able to identify a specific suspicious portion.

For a box running all those servers, you really need to clear up who your box thiniks it is. Set a hostname.

In the dmesg log there3 are things "terminating with status 1". That's baling out with dignity, as opposed to a crash, but they are not working. Software rendering is bad if you set up hardware rendering. In short, finish setting it up, and post details on the box, & video card if thei thread continues.
