16A Quick Problem.. Honest !
- Oct 22, 1999Hi, i have a Problem,
I installed Linux Mandrake 6.0 about a month ago, and im Very Very pleased
with it, i had no problems with the install, or anything, it was all going
Smooothley.. Except for one thing.. When i had finished using the machine,
and wanted to reboot/shutdown the machine, i was using the "halt" command,
is this right ?, because all i kept getting was an error at the end of the
reboot saying that the system could'nt unmount the dirve.. This caused the
machine to force a check when i booted back in, which went ok, but was
anoying... Then the other day, it failed on the Check.. and asked me to
manually fun "fsck" do i did, i ran "fskc /dev/hda5" ( hda5 being my linux
partition) this came up with LOTS of stuff that i just said Yes too, and
thats was it, the machine went all messed up, i couldnt start x, i wouldnt
do anything, the HTTP Service failed on boot, it was taking AGES to get past
Sendmail, and INND.. and when i say ages im talking, 30mins to boot the
Machine, so i guessed i needed to reinstall Linux, which isnt to bad, as i
had alot of practice with this when i installed it last time !!
So i popped my CD in, rebooted the PC, and made my Machine boot from CDrom,
which was fine... i started off the install by Removing the old partition
hda5, then adding it again, and formating and checking it for Errors.. that
was fine, the i asked Mandrake to install Everything... and that was fine...
But, even though its a NEW install, and Drives Have been formated... the
system STILL errors on HTTP, and Still takes 30mins to get past Sendmail,
and INND, and a few other services.. this is WELL anoying.. and im so
confused why there are the exact same problems with the startup of the
system.. Even though i can now get into X ok...
Any ideas.... ??
Sorry for the Length of this Message.. but any help is Much Appreciated..
