Fedora system stuck at system message bus service upon bootup


Problem was started when I installed LDAP server. Then, I restarted pc to effect the changes I made... But, bootup does not work properly. It takes long to start system message bus and seemed like no chance to view the login screen.

How can I fix this? I have used interactive mode inorder to bypass smb to startup but with no luck. The login screen still not showing up.....

bind_policy soft

# Reconnect policy: hard (default) will retry connecting to

Hope this helps

what ultimately resolved this for me was

I found this in centos mantis

In the case of my environment after reviewing the /var/log/messages startups for both system_message bus and NFS stat (rpc.statd) were hanging on connecting to LDAP.

bind_policy soft
to /etc/ldap.conf did help because it forced the system to use the bind_timeout in ldap.conf of 120 seconds.

Lastly though to ultimately resolve the issue I moved my routes from rc.local to a new file S11routes in rc3.d to follow S10network. This allowed the system to have the proper routes so statd and system message bus could find the ldap server.
