Boot with "init=/bin/sh" and wait. Still hangs? -> kernel or hardware
It didn't hang for nearly an hour, and now again with the first
couple of scripts in /etc/rcS.d executed it is running for 20
minutes. I'll give it 15 minutes after each change and then try the
next couple of scripts.
By the way, is there a possibility to stop a process in /bin/sh? I
executed "while true; do uptime; sleep 10; done" and couldn't stop it
with Ctrl+c. I invoked bash as a workaround.
Open case and put a big fan in front.
Replace power supply.
It's a laptop, and the sensors didn't report anything suspicious. It
hangs with battery only and with external power only, that doesn't
Thanks for the hints (strange how one is completely devoid of ideas
when it's one's one machine...)
