Fedora 16 Fail to start services

Ok,

So without any update or anything, just in middle of the day my Fedora stopped working. Period.

When trying to boot (which takes 10x longer than usual), I get some error about akmod startup fail, and asks me to check the status.
When bootup completes, my wired ethernet doesnt work. So I can't do ****.

Here is what I have.
Quote:

Re: Fedora 16 Fail to start services

I'm not sure if this would help or not, but if NetworkManager.service is running, try stopping that service first before trying to start network.service.

Re: Fedora 16 Fail to start services

Select Recovery Mode when booting, then use yum to remove all akmod packages.

Use:
Code:
yum remove *akmod*
y
reboot
@edit
Thinking about it, it's not an good idea to remove all packages. Try to discover the package name and remove it only, using command line on Recovery Mode.
To discover the package name just type N after the system show you the list of packages with *akmod* that you asked to remove. Then use yum again and type the package(s) name(s) you want to remove.

Re: Fedora 16 Fail to start services

The only akmod package I have is akmod-nvidia...should I have installed kmod-nvidia instead?

---------- Post added at 03:04 AM ---------- Previous post was at 02:15 AM ----------

K, so I removed akmod-nvidia and installed kmod-nvidia...got 1 good boot. Next boot I get same error, just bitching about failing to start iscsi.service.
WTF?

Also, internet works only when connected trough router, but it sucks (slow, keeps timing out, impossible to use)...I want to use my ISP's modem/router hybrid. Worked fine before, since booting into windows once it stopped working.

What do I do?

Well since neither of these which were supposed to work, did work:

I jut went into /etc/rc.d/init.d/ and deleted the stupid ****. Now it boots fine :P

Well, it would have worked if you had typed the service names correctly, iscsi and iscsid.

Boy, that's a LOT of information to go by for anyone to begin to help you troubleshoot your wired connection problem.

Re: Fedora 16 Fail to start services

I improved the router perf. by tweaking settings, will try and figure this out some other day.

Im in really bad condition atm. Might have another surgery this week too stressed to do anything right. And in pain.
