Simply put, I was going to install some package and used su to give myself the privlages to do so but then realized that I had the folder in the wrong directory so I 'cd installfolder /bin/sh' not realizing that there was already a file named sh.
Now when I boot I get errors stating that: SuSEfirewall2_setup alsasound boot.udev earlykdm earlykbd hal cron dbus hwscan mdusd nfsboot nscd postfix random rcd smbfs smb cups nmb splash_early sshd xinetd resmgr and portmap cannot be found on runlevel (I forgot to check the runlevel).
Also the login screen states "Log into (none)". It will properly properly authenticate username and password but after logging in (root or user)I recieve a simple command line in the corner and that shows '(none):#'. From this command line I can see / and can mount the rest of the harddrive (multiple partitions) but I seem to have no access to any cd rom drive.
In trying to solve this problem I first tried YaST2's autmatic recovery option (on the boot cd) to no effect and I have copied the file /bin/sh from another SuSE9.3 Pro machine (this was a server machine so no kde/gnome), however, neither had any noticable effect.
Please help this noob that knows just enough to be dangerous.
