HELP!! unable to start linux
 
i just installed the fedora core 6 and the installation went fine.. it asked me to take the cd out and reboot and i did so.. now during booting up while its running those tests.. most of them pass and it says ok.. but suddenly it stops for a few mins and the rest of the tests fail... i uploaded a screenshot..

Something is wrong with your filesystem. It seems to be marked as "read only" which is making it difficult for some essential apps to start. I am not sure what could have caused that. If its a fresh install, I suggest you try reinstalling.

FC6 is using Grub as it's bootloader I think. When GRUB shows up, press e to edit the commands before booting and if one of those lines has the two letters ro (standing for "read only"), try first taking them off. Secondly you could burn a live-cd like Knoppix and boot from it, then mount your FC6 root partition to /mnt and see under there what the file /etc/fstab says about your root partition; if it tries to mount it read-only, try to put read-write instead (ro -> rw).

Though if this indeed is a fresh install and the first boot without the installation media disc, it's very strange. Have you tried any other distribution, like Ubuntu for example, do they do the same?

I have install countless time with linux distros, and I got Fedora Core 6 too, but never get such problem. Strange I must say. I think you need to try some other distro like Ubuntu or Centos to see if same problem exists.

after installing with fc6 did it ask u to remove the installation disk and reboot?? i think i have the ubuntu live cd.. is there any diff in the networking and cgi programs between fedora and ubuntu... cause i have mostly used the fedora version
