Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 507104
Computer freezes during boot.
Last modified: 2009-07-09 21:11:59 EDT
Description of problem: as of this morning, whenever I attempt to turn on my Linux computer, it freezes during the boot process. After checking into it, I found that it freezes while starting the system log, and that ip6tables are also messed up, though I don't believe that should cause the whole system to fail. I am able to use to rescue DVD to get to the command line, but it seems as if I don't have internet (I'm making this report from a different computer). I have tried restoring the ip6tables, but that had no effect except to make SElinux relabel everything at the next boot attempt. I have no idea what component this is, so I just guessed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: consistently
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Turn on computer
Actual results: freezes during loading
Expected results: allows me to log in and use computer
Additional info: I updated several things the day before, and shut the computer down normally. The updates included several selinux packages. I unfortunately will not be available much the next week, so I apologize if I don't get back to questions right away.
Should I just reinstall?
Okay, I reinstalled Fedora 11, and the problem is resolved.
Closing bug, since there's no way to tell what happened.
