No, hold on- how do I interrupt the boot sequence (all the [OK]'s going by), and get a command prompt?

I'm getting that upper left corner cursor blinking (but the same kind as when the bios can't find anything to boot from, it's different)I think what's happening is that .xinitrc is trying to load gnome, remember from the other thread. If I can just get a command prompt I can blank the file.

Why do you need a command prompt?

You need to boot to the command line.

Oh wow cool, man, you're such a guru. What I did was- I tried booting to a knoppix disc but it took forever because knoppix is like 5 gig and I have a cheap dvd drive since I normally never use dvds and so it was just crunching forever. So instead I burned a puppy linux live dvd, I haven't used it yet, but I'll try it when I get home just for fun and to learn it. (Btw I tried a lubuntu disc but it wouldn't boot to it, as if the boot block wasn't set.)

Thanks so much,

rw

Ok here's where I am, it went like this:

The puppy linux disc isn't booting.

The lines that the ubuntu post says to edit in grub aren't in there.

I can switch to a prompt in grub with ctrl alt f4, but it's not a proper prompt, it's like a grub prompt.

But what I was able to do- I figured out that when I boot to fedora, even though it ends up hanging with a blinking cursor, the ssh server is running by then, so I was able to ssh in.

Unfortunately (and I coulda thought of this), the .xinitrc is only in my ~ directory anyway, so apparently that wasn't the problem, because I hadn't even logged in at that point.

Clearing it out still resulted in the same behavior. Which means- the only thing that changed to cause this new problem was installing xfce.

Also- this might be useful: The last thing it says before the cursor is:

Starting Hold until boot process finished up...

Since you can log in via ssh you can try switching back to console mode by running the command

systemctl isolate multi-user.target

I would say yes. What type of graphics card is installed?
Look at the output of the command

(I should point out that knoppix had no problem with it)

well, hell, the fedora installer had no problem with it either- I was able to use the graphical installer fine.

Oh wait wait I have a thought- this is one of those double port on-board graphics chips- maybe it's trying to use the DVI but I'm using the vga? Worth a shot or futile?

No wait, nevermind, that's futile because we'd get that driver error either way. Damn. I guess we're back to finding the driver... doesn't make sense because it's so generic... And again, the installer worked fine with it.
