I have a problem with one of the PCs in the "Linux" Lab. I was testing it as an
nfs client, and it wasn't connecting to my server. So I attempted to reboot
(cleanly, I thought) and now it won't reboot. The last messages I get are:
Checking root filesystem
/dev/hda3 clean <fs stats> [ OK ]
Remounting root filesystem in read-write mode [ OK ]
and then it hangs... CTRL-ALT-DELETE has no effect. I tried a boot disk, but the
same thing happens.
It's a dual boot RH6.0 / NT 4 PC.
I'm not sure if this is a hardware/disk error, I rebooted successfully into the
NT partition and all seems well (and yet it was refused by the nfs server,
whereas the next PC had no problems connecting), or a Linux configuration
problem. Any ideas how I would recover? Do I need to reinstall? (not a
disaster, but would like to avoid it).
Thanks in advance, and thanks for the previous help with my NTFS/HPFS
