After manually updating the kernel from 2.6.33 to 2.6.34 on my OpenSuse 11.2 Notebook, it stops after the message
Loading drivers, configuring devices...
This stop can be interrupted with
Ctrl-C, but when the system enters runlevel 5, no partitions are mounted (but the root partition), many services fail to start, and other strange things are going on. No X11.
I manually updated the kernel many times before, it worked.
Yes, I know, in case of NVidia, the driver has to be recompiled.
The question is:
How can I analyze the cause of the problem?
dmesg gives me soooo much output, I can't "map" it to the output which I see at startup. The output does not contain the string
Loading drivers, configuring devices, or similar.
