Boot Crash F17 - any ideas?
 
I'm annoyed about this as I've just installed the Electronic Spin and updated it and I haven't had time to break it yet. I gather the updates have done that for me :-(. Here's what I get before I'm thrown into maintenance (From dmesg).

Where is it getting that stuff from? grep in /etc/rc.d/init.d is pretty unresponsive, I don't see an rc.sysinit, and the install (from a live cd) seems to have very few init scripts.

EDIT: Forgot to mention - I did get in there and basic libraries and modules.dep all seem present & accounted for.

It's objecting to some ext3 partition I wanted available :-O.

Maybe SELinux shafting the poor old user again. All the waffle from the kernel and the init has changed teetotally :-/. Very Strange.

How exactly did you solve the problem?

I ran into the same issue just by changing /etc/pam.d/system-auth and /etc/nsswitch.conf for LDAP configuration. I have no clue why this caused booting errors.

business_kid 10-19-2012 09:58 AM

I'm banging my head off the wall trying to think... I THINK I grabbed the dmesg (from slackware) and started at the first error (from the boot parameters or init scripts) and fixed it. I changed kernel parameters and updated BIOS. The rest of the crap vanished and I was slightly amazed.

I was booting with pcie_aspm=force. That threw the ACPI interrupts big time. So then I added pci_no_crs or the like. ACPI was basically haywire with kernels 3.2x and above. So I updated the BIOS (2008-->2011), and dropped all the nutty kernel parameters, and things work smoother. How I'm doing with power consumption I don't know. The power supply goes off and the laptop starts running on battery any time the sun goes behind a cloud. Pulling the battery usually sorts it. It's a hardware issue, I think.

EDIT: I had the exact fault in the thread:

Some init script was barfing over that. I think I just took it out and mounted it manually once I had logged in.

Thanks ....

I found the problem yesterday that my case was caused by incorrect settings of LDAP authentication.
After emergency mode log in as root I disabled LDAP and boot was back to normal. Now I am searching to correctly set up LDAP client... I can't understand why it is so difficult on Fedora 17 to get LDAP working....
