After successfully completing an install, the computer froze at the stage where it was supposed to do an fsck during first boot. I booted to rescue mode and edited a file to skip running fsck. Unfortunately, it froze at the same spot the next boot. Altogether I did four installs and about twelve boots. I wanted to get the dmesg file, so I booted to rescue mode and tried to put it on a jump drive, but rescue mode wouldn't allow the jump drive to be mounted, nor could I read the dmesg file.
(These things may have happened because rescue mode doesn't have the functionality, rather than because they were forbidden.)
Since HURD wasn't going to boot, I moved on to play with another OS. I would still like to know what caused the computer to hang -- it must be whatever boot action comes right after the fsck, but I could never find what that is. I realize this is thin information to diagnose the problem, but is there any setting I choose during the install that could have caused this problem? I tried lvm with encryption, lvm without encryption and standard install with ext 3 or 4. Nothing made any difference.
The computer was a 10-year-old Altec with 8g memory and an 80g drive. I told the install program to partition the whole drive.
There were no hardware errors mentioned during the install.
At some point I may try HURD on another computer.
What I would like to know most off all is what happens right after boot-time fsck. That's where things went bad. Perhaps you could send me a dmesg file from a successful boot? Or at least the chunk starting on the line just before the fsck and continuing for another twenty or so lines.
