View Full Version : Intel D102GGC2 Board and Fedora 7 problems?
29th June 2007, 05:21 PM
So I just got a new computer at work with this motherboard and Iíve had some major problems on installation. Installation works fine, but it freezes on first boot. Usually when Iím stting up my user or it doesnít even log back into the gui. Usually it will give an error
INIT: ID "x" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 min.
Iíve read similar issues with no resolve except to load Ubuntu or use Knoppix. Iíve also read some users having it working, but no insight as to how.
Iíve updated my BIOS to the most current version.
I can get in knoppix and make necessary changes. If anyone has any recommendations it would be greatly appreciated.

A google pull "init: Id "x" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes."
In most distributions this means that the system is booting by default
into runlevel 5, which is supposed to respawn (re-start again after
it's been exited) a graphical login via xdm, kdm, gdm, or whatever,
and the system can't locate the program.
However, "Id" can also indicate the absence or misconfiguration of
another program, like mingetty, if init tries to respawn itself more
than 10 times in 2 minutes.
Id "x" is the number in the leftmost column of the /etc/inittab file:
# Run gettys in standard runlevels
Commenting the offending line out and then fixing the errant program
and testing on the command line will allow you to see any error
messages that go to standard error output (console) if the errors are
not going to the system log file. Uncomment the line and restart init
with "kill -SIGHUP 1" or "telinit q" to cause init to reinitialize and
reread the /etc/inittab file.
Some systems, however, rewrite /etc/inittab when booting. In that
case, refer to the init man page, and/or the settings in
Refer to the init and /etc/inittab man pages for detailed information.

Oh a couple of those commands are Unix so might have to change for a linux but anyhow unix and linx commands are similar so anyhow hopes this gets you on the right track
