Yesterday, I had a power outage.
Due to that power failure a CentOS 5.5 x86_64 Test server (UPS battery not yet connected) restarted. But the machine doesn't boot properly anymore
It hangs at boot just when "Enabling /etc/fstab swap [OK]" is being displayed.
To me, it looks like he hangs on the "entering non-interactive startup" or "Init : Runlevel 3" step.
The X environment shows a total blue screen instead of a CentOS login
Other ttys don't help me... on everyone of them i see a blinking cursor with no possibility to enter data.
The server is a Dell PowerEdge T610 with hardware RAID 1 and RAID 5
I already booted with "linux rescue" via the install DVD and did a fsck on VolGroup00 based on Running fsck in CentOS 5
No errors were found...
I also tried to comment out the swap file in "/etc/fstab" but that doesn't help me either.
Are there other things i can try to get the server booting correctly?
