View Full Version : [SOLVED] Boot hangs at kjournald

April 5th, 2010, 03:33 AM
I upgrade to Lucid 64-bit by running update-manager -d. Things seemed to go smoothly until I rebooted. Now every time I reboot it only gets to the following step:

EXT3 FS on sda2, internal journal
EXT3-fs: mounted filesystem with ordered data mode.
kjournald starting. Commit interval 5 second

I does this for each of my partitions, ~6, then it just stops doing anything. It doesn't seem to be accessing the drive. I can't get a login screen on any other terminals (ctrl-alt-FX).

The computer has a KVM. If I switch to the other computer, the information about the keyboard disconnecting shows up on the screen, so it doesn't seem to be locked. However, it doesn't seem to resume booting.

I am not really sure what to even try.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
