probem booting into Linuxmint 15 Mate

Post by joelpaz » Thu Sep 26, 2013 10:42 pm

I installed Linuxmint 15 Mate along with windows 7 recently in a notebook with 320GB in the HDD. First everthing worked smoothly but now I'm having a hard time to boot into Mint (no problem booting into Windows). If I select the first choice which is what it should be as the most direct choice. It shows a text in the left upper part of the screen that first says: Waiting for network configuration.;after a while it changes to: Up to 60 more seconds waiting for network configuration; and finally: Booting into system without full network configuration. Sometimes it freezes there for a long time but sometimes it sends you back to the boot selection screen. If I choose the recovery mode, whatever you select it will do it and always send you back to "resume normal booting" which sends you back to the boot selection screen with the first choice Linuxmint 15 (direct) and the process repeats itself for countless times that sometimes I spend around an hour just to log into Linuxmint. This is my main problem now because I'm working on an issue with the network manager which doesn't run.

Edit /etc/init/failsafe.conf file commenting the next lines:

# failsafe

description "Failsafe Boot Delay"
author "Clint Byrum <clint@ubuntu.com>"

start on filesystem and net-device-up IFACE=lo
stop on static-network-up or starting rc-sysinit

emits failsafe-boot

console output

script
# Determine if plymouth is available
if [ -x /bin/plymouth ] && /bin/plymouth --ping ; then
PLYMOUTH=/bin/plymouth
else
PLYMOUTH=":"
fi

# The point here is to wait for 2 minutes before forcibly booting
# the system. Anything that is in an "or" condition with 'started
# failsafe' in rc-sysinit deserves consideration for mentioning in
# these messages. currently only static-network-up counts for that.

#### sleep 20

# Plymouth errors should not stop the script because we *must* reach
# the end of this script to avoid letting the system spin forever
# waiting on it to start.
$PLYMOUTH message --text="Waiting for network configuration..." || :
### sleep 40

$PLYMOUTH message --text="Waiting up to 60 more seconds for network configuration..." || :
sleep 59
$PLYMOUTH message --text="Booting system without full network configuration..." || :

# give user 1 second to see this message since plymouth will go
# away as soon as failsafe starts.
sleep 1
exec initctl emit --no-wait failsafe-boot
end script

post-start exec logger -t 'failsafe' -p daemon.warning "Failsafe of 120 seconds reached."
