Thread: Suse won't login-stuck

    Default Suse won't login-stuck

    I have gone round and round in circles. I have updated my software from the repositories and where there was conflict I deleted the conflict. It said there was a new kernel loaded and I had to re-boot. I did and thats the problem from there on. It just gets stuck on loading, showing running script info when loading (sorry not techno babble, but I hope you understand what I mean). I have loaded the disk and tried to repair, have tried twice, and different techniques from the disk and had no luck. It state on one part that it could not find the root/ partition.
    When loading from the hard drive after the splash screen you have lists that are loading. The last it loads is
    usb 8-3: Product: HP Scanjet 3300C
    usb 8-3: Manufacturer: Hewlett-Packard

    It has stated when trying to rescue the system
    "/dev/sda1 is mounted. e2fsk: Cannot continue, aborting"

    When I have gone through the motions of repairing it staes resolved I click ok and the I have Error on a blue screen and a red box

    No idea what to do now. All I seem to have is just bad luck, its my only OS and I have used ALL my bandwidth nearly. Like you I need my computer as I live on morphine, in great pain and the computer is my sanctuary. SO I really am hoping someone has the elixir to resolve this problem

    Many thanks and hoping for a quick responce

    Did you deliberately choose ext2 file sys?

    Anyway. My advice run the installer again, use ext3.
    You just need
    /
    /home
    swap

    If you already have a /home with files you want to keep, fine, just don't format it.

    This may help

    Thats what I thought I would have to do!!!!! Its a load of downloading as I hadn't backed up anything and I am running out of bandwidth. NOT HAPPY

    This is the fourth time loading. Last chance for Suse and Linux

    And yes I had loaded up the system in that way, so something had happened after the updates and downloads!!!
