LMDE hangs on boot at configuring network

Postby Travis No on Sat Nov 03, 2012 11:31 pm

I installed LMDE on an old laptop awhile back, and booted it up last week.. shortly after I was met with a prompt to install some updates which I faithfully did.. after installing ~1000+ packages and trying to reboot, I keep getting stuck at "configuring network connections" in the boot process.

The laptop has a BCM4306 wireless card according to my PCLinuxOS install. I tried blacklisting the b43 and b43legacy drivers in the LMDE install from PCLOS, but LMDE still hangs at the same place while booting.. Any suggestions? Is it possible to boot from grub2 with networking turned off (I tried adding "1" for init level 1 to the end of the boot stanza in grub2, but it still hangs on networking)?

There is nothing of value on the install, I just would prefer to avoid having to re-install & update if possible.

Thanks!

I tried chrooting into LMDE from PCLOS and re-running updates..I had a few errors from latex, so I apt-get remove 'd them and successfully ran updates, but it didn't solve the issue.

I'm in the process of re-installing 2012.04 and will try the update again, but from console this time.. :roll:
