Re: first experience with f12 beta

Hello,

Just installed f12 beta on my infamous HP dv9237eu laptop. I read that suspend will now work even when you have nvidia graphics adapter. I try suspend to disk on kde, screen goes black but the cpu fan keeps rolling. System seems frozen so I have to use power button to shutdown.

Now when I boot I see:

*** An error occured during the file system check.
    *** ...
        *** ...
            *** ...
                Give root password for maintenance
                    (or type Control-D to continue):


Indent looks weird but who cares. Now if I press ANY key I get:
    Login incorrect.
        Give root password for maintenance
            (or type Control-D to continue):

Control-D does not work and I can't type root password. How can I boot normally?

Oh, over-zealous security nazis.[1] Easily defeated. Boot with the option
init=/bin/bash

It gets you a shell (bash) and, with any luck, initrd has found your disks so you can run fsck on everything.

1 So described because, alone, the effort is so futile. Give me physical access, I own the system. Unless you use encryption.
