I have redhat linux 9.0 with compiled kernel 2.6.7 (default was 2.4.20-8).
Currently it is running in runlevel 5. Output of "runlevel" command is "n 5".
System is hanging, when I try to run in level 3 (init 3) or level 4(init 4). Unable to get control, some number is printing continuously in the terminal.
Why my system is hanging?
Am I missing some thing?
I am completely strucked up and any info on this would be GREATLY APPRECIATED..
Output of my /etc/inittab:
# inittab This file describes how the INIT process should set up
# the system in a certain run-level.

# Default runlevel. The runlevels used by RHS are:
# 0 - halt (Do NOT set initdefault to this)
# 1 - Single user mode
# 2 - Multiuser, without NFS (The same as 3, if you do not have networking)
# 3 - Full multiuser mode
# 4 - unused
# 5 - X11
# 6 - reboot (Do NOT set initdefault to this)

# When our UPS tells us power has failed, assume we have a few minutes

# This does, of course, assume you have powerd installed and your
