Snowlinux 4 doesn't Start
I installed Snowlinux 4 XFCE on my older Sony VAIO. I had to do a fair amount of partitioning with the built in GParted to get my home and / folder set up to the satisfaction of the installer. After that, though, everything seemed to go fine. However, when I turned it on it came up with these error messages....


[ok] Starting network conection maager:NetworkManager.
[warn] PulseAudio configured for per-user sessions ... (warning)
[FAIL] startpar: service(s) returned failure: plymouth ... failed!

At this point the boot process stops, it won't get by the error messages.

Most of the error messages that I see I know what they are, they are pretty routine and easy to deal with, but I don't even have the first clue what startpar and plymouth are!:confused:

Thanks in advance for any help!:)

Since Snow Linux seems to be Debian and Ubuntu Based. I might suggest reading


Lastly, you might want to join Snow Linux Forum and ask them there since Snow Linux documentation is pretty scarce and it it seems to be based on Debian plus Ubuntu.

Sorry I can't help you more. I have no clue on how they put Snow Linux together.

It looks like something was corrupted! If it's just Plymouth that's giving trouble, you can stop it running:

Would a re-install help?

That depends. Did the trouble start with the download, burning the disk, or installing the files? If the first or second, then re-installing from the same disk is not going to help! I'd try blocking Plymouth first: if that leaves everything else working, I'd be happy.
