View Full Version : F16 installation problem

24th November 2011, 07:37 PM

I did a F16 DVD clean installation to replace the existing working f11. I selected "software environment" option, the installation was completed normally, DVD was ejected, and I was asked to reboot the system. However, when I rebooted the system, I got message similar to "complete init. entering main loop" during bootup. The system never advances beyond this point.

Any suggestions are highly appreciated.

Having the excact same problem on an Asus Eee PC, on my computer the line it gets stuck at reads:

[ 176.153817] abrtd[943]: Init complete, entering main loop

I'm trying to install Fedora 16 on a computer that previously ran an Ubuntu-version (don't remember wich), but I've chosen to format and clean everything when installing Fedora. Tried to make a live CD, but that won't boot either. Can't remember the exact problem there, but since I want to install Fedora to the hard disk drive, I don't really see that as relevant.
