CentOS 5.3 - can't boot - HELP!
Posted on 2009-04-22
I've just done the most stupid thing... I've followed someone's documentation to the letter without any thought as I went, as to whether it would screw up my own installation. The document called for the removal of openssl, saying that it was OK to do that because I could install it again later.... BANG! I can no longer boot the OS.
I'm running GNOME and even if I go into (I)nteractive, I can't seem to stop GNOME from starting, so when it goes blank (obviously needed openssl !!) that's it - I'm sat there looking at a blank screen, even if there is a login screen underneath.
Am I totally stuffed, or is there a way not to have to reinstall the server from scratch?
