View Full Version : Boot Fails if not with failsafe option

How does one begin to determine which parameters to include in the boot process when the normal boot fails and only a failsafe boot works?
Also any clues as to why the internet is not accessible ?

Try to determine where it fails during normal boot (networking, usb, scsi etc.) then use the cheat codes (http://www.knoppix.net/wiki/Cheat_Codes) to eliminate that piece of hardware.

In failsafe you can try to bring up your network with

# ifconfig eth0 up

and if that works,

# pump -i eth0

Good Luck!
