Hello i was woundering if anyone could help me. My mandrake linux 9.0 hangs after the lilo bootsplash but before kde loads. My computer screen stays black with an 'X' cursor which can not be moved.

I though that it could be my wireless mouse (battries are low) but ithe system booted ok when there where no battries in it, so that is not the cause.

I rebooted linux ten times and the 'error' occured once, however it crashes so badly that i have to reboot using the switch by my psu. I have updated the lasted rpms using mandrake update.

Could some tell me what possibilities it could be?

My syslog says :


Nov 15 01:20:07 localhost xinetd[2418]: Started working: 1 available service
Nov 15 01:23:03 localhost syslogd 1.4.1: restart.


you can see that it was left to unfreeze for 3 minutes before i rebooted.

any ideas ?
