Salvete! I have a CentOS 2.6 system that I am setting up as a server. I think the system updated the kernel and now it won't complete the boot process.
When I installed the OS, I installed the GUI too, because I am still learning, and it helps. However, when I have everything ready, I will change the boot options to skip the GUI.
At any rate, my problem is that it won't finish booting now. Here is the readout that I get if I escape out of the splash screen:
Calling the system activity data collector (sadc): Cannot open /var/log/sa/sa19: Permission denied
Starting Monitoring.... [OK]
Bringing up Loopback interface: [OK]
Starting auditd: [FAILED]
Starting portreserve: [OK]
Starting system logger: _
Now, I *am* able to boot to level 1, but not to level 3. So I booted to level 1 and
restarted with bootlevel1 and ran chmod 740 -R /var/log/sa
Also did chmod 740 -R /var/log/audit
This thread is related, but didn't help: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...n-boot-846100/
What do I do now? What other clues can I provide for y'all?
