can't boot mandriva 10.2


I've installed Mandriva 10.2, all has ride fine. But when I boot the system, after some messages comes always the same in red:
/etc/init.d/functions: line 77 :/bin/gettext: Permition denied
and halt. I'd tried reinstall several times.

My configuration is: Athon 2.0 MBoard Asus A7V8X-X, 760 mb of RAM, Vga is ATI 9200. Please, I need help. Thanks.

Hum, newbee here.
Maybe you could have googled harder, but now I have
done it, here it is:

have a look to
http://qa.mandrakesoft.com/show_bug.cgi?id=7617
I am not saying you have a bug, I do not know

and this one seemed solved
http://mandrivausers.org/index.php?showtopic=12113

Maybe try an install with ext3 file system
also watch that noauto option

See the last post here

Thanks Emmanuel. Your indications where very much usefull. The problem is resolved. I had 2 drives, one of them with another Linux distro (Kurumin). I belive Mandriva, when was booting, confused 2 distros. So I disconnected the second drive and all runned fine. Once more thankyou very much.

Sinay.

I am glad it is solved. Happy to help. It helps to help as well.
I started on Linux only in Nov, and I was glad to have some
help at the beginning. It is surprising how two brains
usually work better, even if sometimes suggestion are shots
in the dark.

Happy linux!
