    init not working


    In terminal I su - and then run init 3 and the machine freezes at this point:

    Starting irqbalance:
    Starting anacron: [OK]

    ... and then it hangs.

    I tried rebooting into runlevel 3, but all that is doing is adding identical entries to grub.

    Try booting into single-user mode form grub. When you get to your grub bootloader, go to edit your boot profile, and add "single" at the end of your kernel line. After you boot into single-user mode, then type "init 3". Are you having issues with X?

    Any errors on /var/log/errors?
    My crime is that of curiosity. My crime is that of judging people by what they say and think, not what they look like. My crime is that of outsmarting you, something that you will never forgive.

    perhaps using 'telinit 3' instead of init.
