I today upgraded(updated?) my FC2 installation using synaptic.Everything ran smooth. System was running fine. I wanted to add my new dvd-writer to the system and shutdown.
On reboot afterwards, system stops with a segmenation violation error just after enabling swap.
dvd writer is fine as I have run in rescue mode booting through dvd-writer. But i really do not know what all I can do to get back the OS running.I should really be sorry if I have to re-install as this installation is very well updated and setup to my needs. Re-setting samba,wine,autosmb and all will really be great pain, but otherwise system set-up is standard fedora.
I have tried to boot into single user mode (and other run levels too) by directly editing GRUB. Each time system stops exactly at the same point (as told above). I have checked the filesystems in rescue mode and using live CDs, to no avail. However I tried, I could not get into Interactive mode by pressing 'I' ( Does it have to be capital 'I' ? ). I have tried to figure out what action must be the system doing at the time of fault. A reading of rc.sysinit suggests, it is at the fag end of system init and about to launch into default runlevel (5). But it must go into run level on before that ?
I really appreciate any help to get back into running FC2. This I am posting with SUSE Live Cd running the system.
