system won't reboot

I am using yellow dog 6.1 installed onto a Sony ps3.

Last night it seized up.

I turned it off and now it will not re-boot, it just keeps saying "respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes"

It won't do anything else even after 5 minutes.

What can I do?

Help Please

I am guessing an end result will be reinstall what you were asking about in . Anyways I do not know what is causing that issue to advise you what to do to fix the current installation. Did you edit any configuration files before you shut the system down?


reboot, system
