Well, I tried deleting every files on the /tmp directory but lo luck. Then I deleted the /tmp itself and next time I boot the screen went blank without error. Then if I press Esc I see problem regarding runlevel 5. I went to IRC and someone named tacit told me to use some complex chmod command on /tmp dir.
I did that, the old message (which I’ve posted) came back.
it is impossible to know what was damaged during the power
failure…any number of files could have been open and in a state of
flux…there could have been a rather long queue of items waiting to
be written to disk, etc etc etc. when the power failed…
if the OP has instituted the means given by caf to correctly clean the
/tmp, and still /tmp is full on next boot i have to ask:
how big is the space you gave openSUSE when you installed it?
it is possible that there is zero space available on the partition
which contains /tmp?
or, maybe the power failure damaged the hard drive itself…(i don’t
know if that is possible?)
