Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 11816
Impossible to start Redhat 6.2 after a correct installation.
Last modified: 2008-08-01 12:22:51 EDT
On a PC "Toshiba Satellite 2100 CDS".
After the installation of Redhat 6.2 from a CD-Rom - with no problem - the
installed O.S starting is down because of:
- First read right problem for filesystem / on which is installed the O.S
(Several error messages are edited).
- Afterwards impossibility to start pcmcia (deadlock).
On single mode connection, impossibility to change setup pcmcia option or
to delete pcmcia links (rights problem ...).
Presently any OS restarting checks the filesystem,finds errors and abort.
Ready to give more information: I''m just trying to install Redhat for 3
days and I''m not sure to have correctly detailed my problem !
Thanks for any help.
Jonathan - take some time and think if this in any way could be gnome-core
related and if not please assign it to the appropriate component.
I think it's a gnome core problem.
Here's more detailed history of the installation from Cd-Rom:
1/ Options Gnome and fdisk selected.
2/ Disk hda divided in 4 partitions:
The first one for Windows
The second one for Linux swap
The third one for future Oracle
The last one for Redhat linux.
3/ Creation of user root.
4/ Screen type choosen by default.
5/ Test X configuration OK.
6/ Installation of all packages (607Mo) OK.
7/ Creation of restarted floppy OK.
8/ Approximative congratulation message: "Installation OK ! Type enter to
restart your O.S".
9/ CD-Rom out
10/ Rebooting system ... Loading linux ... OK OK OK ... until "Starting
pcmcia": DEADLOCK !
11/ After waiting for 10 minutes, reset !
12 Loading linux ... but the automatic check of the O.S filesystem is KO.
The following error
message is edited:
"Check /dev/hda4 unexpected inconsistency; run fsck manually (without -a
and -p options)
An error occured during the filesystem check. Dropping you to a shell; The
system will reboot when you leave the shell".
13/ Login to root.
14/ fsck /dev/hd4
RC=4: FS errors left uncorrected.
15/ Logout and restart automatically in single mode.
Comment: On the same PC, from a CD-Rom, Redhat 6.0 has been installed without
After installing and starting Redhat 6.1 on my PC without any problem,
upgrading 6.1 by 6.2 is ... also without any problem.
So only installing Redhat 6.2 meets problem on my PC.
Hum, what's bad ?
Moving to kernel (pcmcia). Definitely not a gnome-core issue...
Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
