Blank screen after CentOS installation


Hello ,

I have installed CentOS 5 with gonme , After installation a blank screen appears and nothing responses . I have rebooted with interactive mode and with random Yes and No s the CentOS Genome comes up . How can I define which service is causing the error as I cant examine about 50 services with 50 restarts ?

Someone in centos.org forums answered me to resolve by this way :
Quote:
Boot up in runlevel 3.
Run setup, and reconfigure X.
but I do not know how can I boot in runlevel 3 as I'm totally newbie in Linux.

Best Regards

Boot into rescue mode and then edit "/etc/inittab" to have a default run level of 3.

runlevel 3 will enable you to debug your issue. You can put it back to level 5 if you want Gnome to automatically come up later.
