I am currently trying to restart an IBM server running OpenLinux (Caldera). During the system startup, the computer locks up with the last line of text reading "Unmount /proc...". What could be causing this problem and how do I resolve it. I have consulted the technical support department with the company that originally supplied this server, they contend that it is a hardware failure. I've attempted removing all hardware from the system with the exception of the hard drive and still encounter the same problem. Can anyone help?:

maybe the system was shut down without properly unmounting partitions.

have you tried booting it in single user mode, and running fsck on that partition that conaints /proc ?
