Fedora 15 don't start after power outage

Dear all,

I have Fedora 15 on my computer and while working there was a power outage and afterwards my machine won't start!

It stops at:

Starting Wait for Plymouth Boot Screen to Quit...
Unfortunately I am kind of new to Linux and have no idea how to fix this.

Please help,
Henrik

Re: Fedora 15 don't start after power outage

Noone want to break the bad news...?

I can press ctrl-alt-f2 and log in and also ssh from my other machine, but once in I don't really know what to look for. I have booted once from the live-CD and did some kind of disk check (it was called something like smart-check) using the gui. It found nothing strange.

What can I try?

If you can boot the live CD, try running a manual filesystem check:
Code:
fsck -f /dev/sdxn
for each partition. Make sure they're unmounted first!

Also check /var/log/messages and /var/log/boot.log for errors.

Re: Fedora 15 don't start after power outage

actually, the F15 boot may be running a filesystem check when it "appears" to hang.

Fedora 15 switched to using systemd to boot the system, and the version on F15 didn't put out a status message when it was checking a filesystem, so it appeared to "hang"

Try letting the boot sit there for a few minutes and see if it gets past a the filesystem check and continues booting.

Or you can do as Gareth mentions and run a manual filesystem check on the drives from a livecd.
