Re: new problem with graphical login



I tried to boot by editting the grub entry with 'init=/bin/bash', but it did not work
The error message was 'exec of init ('/bin/bash') failed!!!!   No such file or directory.
 
With the resuce disc, it's complaining about the same sort of thing.  When I run
'chroot /mnt/sysimage'   is complains it can not find /bin/sh.   The rescue disc
does find all  the drives and the proper files links are in mnt.   But can't mount
it to make it writable.  
 
Any other suggestions.   I don't get it.   Especially when there are a few people
that reverted back fine.

There is an option '--noscripts' which allows you to skip
scripts in case of errors.  Installing glibc does
re-execute init.

How about booting with 'init=/bin/bash'?

Could you be more specific what "not help" means (and stop
top-posting)?  Rescue disk should use its own libraries.
At least this is the case if you will boot from an installation
disk with 'linux rescue'.  Mount your disks writable, i.e.
"Continue" when asked.  rpm has an option '--root' which
allows you to change a tree which will be affected by operations
so you can fix things if you really have a mess on your hands.

If you cannot boot "rescue" then you likely have a hardware
problem.
