boot stops at "Updating module dependencies for 2.4..."


hello,

Since some days ago my 2.4 stoped bootting at this point:

Updating module dependencies for linux 2.4

It just stops... it isn't that it is getting more time, it STOPS (welll, I waited like 30 minutes to be sure... :-) )


Nothing special happened before. I didn't install anything, or upgraded, or removed or nothing. Just that it was very slow, so i closed firefox, and kde, and rebooted... or NOt rebooted. :-) since that problem happened...

I have other kernels, like some 2.6.x, and they are working ( I am using ione of them now) but I'd prefer to go back to my old one... I miss it ... :-)

Suggestions?

Thanks and bye,

everal

Check /var/log for error messages, and post what you find.

no error messages

I couldn't find nothing...

and as it stops so early the boot, and then I reboot with the other kernel, maybe it won't generate any message. is this possible?

Hmmm...
I'm having difficulty finding references.

What were you doing just prior to the boot failure?

Have you tried recompiling?
