Re: Can't login to bo
I had the same problem. I could only log in if I booted single, eg.
loadlin zImage root=/dev/hda3 ro single. After a lot of trial and
I determined that nis was the culprit. If you delete all start links
to /etc/init.d/nis in your default runlevel, and any others that you
and reboot, you should be able to log in. In other words, delete all
such /etc/rc?.d/S??nis. I don't know what the problem with nis is but
I really don't need it anyway.
