Thread: Gnome liveCD boot of 11.2 RC2 fails for me

    Default Gnome liveCD boot of 11.2 RC2 fails for me

    I downloaded the liveCD Gnome of RC 11.2 and burnt it; I have now tried to boot it on two of our computers; (that run varying versions of OpenSuse well);

    in both cases, by pressing escape and watching the boot sequence I got the message; after many iterations;

    INIT: Id "5" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 mins;
    INIT: no more processes left in this runlevel

    I take it you did the media check

    Try removing all boot arguments and just add the number 3

    At the login, login as root
    No password, just hit ↵ a couple of times

    then try; startx

    sorry; this is the problem of dealing with experts ...

    Try removing all boot arguments and just add the number 3

    I get a welcome screen

    I select liveCD; it starts running and then gives the message I quoted ...


    At the login, login as root

    No password, just hit ↵ a couple of times

    then try; startx

    When you select Live CD
    Look lower down - can you see where it says 'Boot Options'
    type 3
    It should appear there, and just hit enter

    follow my earlier instructions to login as root at the CLI

    no good;

    just spirals out as I press "escape" and watch it attempt to boot;

    something about I/O error on sr0 and same respawning stuff

    ......... meaning thanks for the advice about boot options;

    I entered 3 as advised; hit enter; got a Suse backdrop screen; and pressed escape to watch what it did as it started to boot;

    I will try another DVD drive later to do the burn again;

    I downloaded an Ubuntu 9.10 to try; it failed to boot (computer 1) and I then copied the Ubuntu iso to an older DVD drive; (computer 2)

    it is now booting okay on (a third) computer;

    so I should try to copy the Suse .iso to the older computer and burn from that, and re-try;

    aren't computers simple ..........

    got some sort of hardware issue with the DVD/CD drive on the newest computer;

    probably going to be fixed by discarding and installing a new one:

    RC 11.2 now boots through early stages fine after burning on old DVD drive; (and at precautionary slow speed); on computer 2

    and boots further into sequence; seems to have reached another hiccup but will report back later

    You didn't actually answer if you had run the media check?
