How to go to a minimal environment in OPENSUSE 12.3, 32 bit desktop PC

Hi,

I am trying to debug s2ram sleep function on my computer. I find the following link:

https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:Suspend_to_RAM

It says:

’boot with init=/bin/bash at the boot prompt

At GRUB2 menu, I press ‘e’ key and add one line:
init=/bin/bash
but I do not see any change with normal boot. It seems that it does not go to minimal environment. Could you help me on the above question? I am new to Linux. Please give me detail procedures if you could.

Thanks,

Ok notice the versions that help is for. Those are instruction for grub1 not grub2

That is an emergency procedure and does not give you a running system.
What are you attempting to do with that?

And why couldn’t you have simply used:

I can see using tinyurl.com for /long/ links but this one hardly
qualifies as long.

Just saying, I hate to click on links that could take you to who knows
where and cause problems. At least provide a clue to where the link
takes you.

I agree with you, but apparently the forum software is configured to
convert all links to small links, no matter what you actually type.

Fortunately, at least in my case, “tinyurl” show by default as the link
to be expanded, and you have to actually click again to load the final
target.
