Recently I installed fedora core six with the hope of triple booting alongside windows XP and openSuSE 10.2 on my FSC Amilo laptop whilst keeping the suse bootloader.
So added line in suse's menu.lst to use fc's grub.conf:
title Fedora Core 6
and it appears to boot as when using fc's own bootloader.
But I have never got fedora to boot properly (i.e. get to loading kde) without interactive booting, and this is my problem. When I first installed it i chose not to install its own bootloader, but added its own info to my suse one as above, the initial first boot froze at loading service "xfs", and again on second time, third time froze before that at loading "crond" so booted using interactive setup and didn't load xfs and finally got to kde desktop. Today, when I boot up fedora I only get as far as "enabling /etc/fstab swaps" and the system hangs...
I have no swap partition for fedora as yet, as I was hoping to get it to use my suse one, but this caused no problem on the initial boot, and I do have 1 GB RAM
I can't Ctrl-Alt-Backspace kill whats going on without it freezing on a black screen
I'm a real newbie to fedora core (and linux) and I must say I was expecting more of fedora than this... What is going wrong?
Thanks for your help in advance!
