  1. PMPatrick, I forgot to mention that I tried the series of commands you suggested: linux noapic nolapic acpi=off nopinit No joy. The last line was not HAL, but instead: Start ALSA-version 1.0.12: trident OK Daniel, thanks for explanation about nopinit - no parallel initializing - to start services in parallel . Being new to this it's good to get some hooks to hang things on.
  2. PmPatrick, your edit to AussieJohn is precisely correct: Edit: AussieJohn, he appears to have done a standard, default mdv2007 install which apparently went OK but it fails to complete a bootup. He appears to be using a knoppix livecd to boot up and access the mdv root filesystem and mdv boot logs. The knoppix livecd appears to be booting up fine. Exactly. I have very basic hardware: 1 CD rom, 1 ide HD (no zip) , 1 floppy, 1 graphic, 1 network. That's it. Here is lspci: root@ttyp0[knoppix]# lspci 00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corp. 440BX/ZX/DX - 82443BX/ZX/DX Host bridge (rev 03 ) 00:01.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corp. 440BX/ZX/DX - 82443BX/ZX/DX AGP bridge (rev 03) 00:04.0 ISA bridge: Intel Corp. 82371AB/EB/MB PIIX4 ISA (rev 02) 00:04.1 IDE interface: Intel Corp. 82371AB/EB/MB PIIX4 IDE (rev 01) 00:04.2 USB Controller: Intel Corp. 82371AB/EB/MB PIIX4 USB (rev 01) 00:04.3 Bridge: Intel Corp. 82371AB/EB/MB PIIX4 ACPI (rev 02) 00:09.0 Multimedia audio controller: Trident Microsystems 4DWave DX (rev 02) 00:0b.0 Ethernet controller: 3Com Corporation 3c905 100BaseTX [boomerang] 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Matrox Graphics, Inc.

  3. Sorry for the confusion. It was a knoppix CD I've been running off. pmpatrick, I tried those commands with no success I booted directly from the HD which led to the 2 options of LINUX or FAILSAFE Pressed escape to the command prompt. typed: linux noapic nolapic acpi=off Still froze at HAL (It says OK next to HAL. Does that mean that HAL has been successfully passed and that it is the NEXT command that is the problem?) I could also see that the acpi service had indeed been turned off. Then I tried: linux nopinit This time the acpi service was back. The last line was different, not HAL, but instead: Start ALSA-version 1.0.12: trident OK I've never used any floppy. I have no usb devices connected. Could the HAL problem point to the floppy drive?
  4. Yes I noticed the same thing a few days ago. So I checked the drive. But there was no floppy in the drive. I have been running off the CD the whole time. I have never used GRUB or LILO and haven't a clue how to make a floppy with grub or use it. Now it all makes sense what's been happening. - e not working - grub.conf not existing, only lilo.conf - esc took me to the command prompt but I could not change anything - I assumed that if Aussie John was using Grub, that FREE 2007 would be the same. Where to from here??
  5. AussieJohn, I couldn't get your e or E to work while the blue Mandriva boot window is counting down 10 seconds. The E simply stopped the countdown. I pressed a 2nd time without luck. The blue Mandriva bootup screen has only 2 options: "Linux" or "Failsafe". I have now booted from CD1 of the 4 installation CDs I burnt. Now I have many boot options. When I pressed E it just inserted e into the "Boot options" line. What next?
  6. Digitalfreedom, I left the PC running for 30 minutes. Nothing happened. But thanks anyway. Kephra, I'll try that now using AussieJohns magic "E". Dan, that was interesting to read your comment. Here goes........
  7. Thanks a lot for all your responses. Very informative.
  8. After looking through a lot of blurb, I still can't grasp the difference between the free and purchased versions of 2007. Why would the ordinary guy on the street need to buy 2007? What's wrong with the free version? [moved from Software by spinynorman]
  9. Have installed Free 2007 2 times with the same result, even though I changed the graphic card and network card. Everything goes fine with the installation until I am asked to reboot the PC. The reboot process goes fine until after "Starting HAL service". It shows "OK" next to "Starting HAL service". Then it just freezes at time 19:43:32. I know very little about linux, but managed to use Knoppix to locate 2 log files. They are: file:/mnt/hda1/var/log/syslog Nov 29 19:43:21 localhost syslogd 1.4.1: restart.

I'd be extremely grateful for help on this. I'm trying to get more experience with linux so I can start to introduce it into the schools. The first time I posted this problem “Kephra” kindly contributed the following: “Mine used to freeze all the time right after it set my hostname. I discovered that if I remove the "resume=/dev/hdx" option from the boot options that it no longer hangs there. You mght want to try that if you have the GRUB boot loader installed. I reinstalled Mandriva at least 6 times before I discovered that.” Perhaps this advice will work, but I don't know how to do it. Could someone kindly explain how to or give a better suggestion? I'm really stuck.
  10. Have just installed Free 2007 for the 1st time. Everything seemed to go fine with the installation until I was asked to click on a button to reboot the PC. The reboot process went fine until after "Starting HAL service". It shows "OK" next to "Starting HAL service". Then it just freezes. I rebooted 2 more times selecting both FAILSAFE and linux-nonfb (don't know what fb means) Same result. Actually FAILSAFE ended up going to the prompt "sh-3.1#" I've installed and used SKOLELINUX (Debian) on 2 other PCs. Only a few problems there. So what is happening here? I know very little about linux, but I'm the system administrator at 2 small schools using windows 2003 server with active directory. I'd be extremely grateful for help on this. I'm trying to get more experience with linux so I can start to introduce it into the schools. Pentium 3 500 MHz 8 gig HD 380 meg RAM Bios - Award 4.51PG
