FC5- System Stops at "Starting System Message BUS "


I am running FC5 on my home PC. It config is P4 with 180Gb hdd space.

Now I am facing a problem . While booting the system stops at Starting System Message Bus ......

I mean the system doesn't restart. But it doesn't go beyond that.

I have selected auto partition while installing

Can somebody help me on that

Thanks in Advance

OK, read on and found an answer, 'Comment out ldap from group line in /etc/nsswitch.conf'

Now can boot again, just can't use LDAP authentication...

just edit /etc/ldap.conf

and set bind_policy soft

# Reconnect policy: hard (default) will retry connecting to
# the software with exponential backoff, soft will fail
# immediately.
#bind_policy hard
bind_policy soft

yes What you did was Correct . It was an issue with the Ldap. I also did the same. I have switched later to Suse 10.2 . It is good.

I just ran into the same problem on my Fedora 7 x86_64 system (home server/Windows PDC). It froze at "Starting System Message Bus". The suggestion from jadx appears to have fixed the issue (system boots and LDAP authentication is working).

Thanks jadx!
