Re: Bootup Freezes - Still Need Help



Responders have suggested this might be a hardware problem but I don't
see why.  I downloaded the latest debian kernel-source-2.4.22 and
complied a new kernel.  I still have the freeze on bootup problem.  The
point in the bootup process where this occurs seems to be random.

I can recover by booting an alternate kernel.  I have four choices:
vmlinuz-2.2.19-compact on the harddrive, bbc-2.1 on a cd,
Knoppix_V3.3-2003-11-14-en and Rettungs-CD business card I ordered from
Germany.  It is generally sufficient to simply boot up with one of
these, do nothing and re-boot to the kernel-image-2.4.22.

Once I have successfully booted to kernel-image-2.4.22 everything works
normally.  Shutdowns look normal.

Is it possible that the shutdown is not normal and leaves problem that
affects the next re-boot of kernel-2.4.22 but not the other debian
kernels?
