    Fedora startup fail


    Hi to everyone. I've got a little problem. I get this at Fedora 14 startup:

    Code:
    Welcome to Fedora
    Starting udev: 						[ OK ]
    Setting hostname localhost.localdomain: 		[ OK ]
    Setting up Logical Volume Management: 3 logical volume(s) in volume group "VolGroup" now active
    							[ OK ]
    Checking filesystems
    /dev/...
    /dev/...
    /dev/...
    							[ OK ]
    Remounting root filesystem in read-write mode: 		[ OK ]
    Mounting local filesystems: 				[ OK ]
    Enabling /etc/fstab swaps: 				[ OK ]
    Entering non-interactive startup
    Starting monitoring for VG VolGroup: 3 logical volume(s) in volume group "VolGroup" monitored
    							[ OK ]
    ip6tables: Applying firewall rules: 			[ OK ]
    iptables: Applying firewall rules: 			[ OK ]
    Starting auditd: 					[ OK ]
    Starting portreserve: 					[ OK ]
    Starting system logger: 				[ OK ]
    Retrigger failed udev events 				[ OK ]
    Starting sshd: 						[ OK ]
    Starting sendmail: 					[ OK ]
    Starting sm-client: 					[ OK ]
    Starting crond: 					[ OK ]
    after that nothing happens...

    I must say that I've just installed FC14 and I've done some job under it. After that I've modified my /etc/inittab file. The following string:
    Code:
    id:3:initdefault:
    I've replaced with this:
    Code:
    id:5:initdefault:
    Now I realize it was my mistake =)

    Someone tell me, how can I modify it back now, or simply run my system normally, so that I can get access to it!


    Thanks.

    You could fire up a Live CD, manually mount the root volume to an alternate location and edit the inittab.

    Oh, I hoped there is an easier solution. Nothing like it's too hard or something, but it's required to find Live CD now... =(

    I think it's simpler for me to reinstall F14. =)

    Anyway, thanks.
