System won't boot after security update April 2013
|Reported by:||rrking||Owned by:|
System update recommended a security update yesterday. My system would not boot this morning. I installed PCBSD 9.1 onto a different hard disk this morning, accepted all updates (including the security update), and the system wouldn't reboot (or, more precisely, reboots as described below).
The BTX loader does its job, but the computer reboots at the end of the BTX loader sequence (displaying the power on screen and then booting again), suggesting that the kernel is no longer bootable. This happens quickly enough that I can't see what the last messages are.
The computer is an old Compaq model with a Sempron processor, and 1.25 GB memory. I am using the i386 version of PCBSD 9.1.
