Hi,I am extremely new to Linux. I inherited a linux machine running CentOS 6.3 and ran the software update. After the update the system asked to restart, but was stuck at the boot page ... [by uds56]
I've just installed Centos but Grub doesnt pick it up. I have a dual linux boot system running Crunchbang and Centos. Centos was installed at a later point and now only the grub2 from the crunchbang installation works. I tried running grub-update, but that didn't work.
Short question is: should we always do a yum update --exclude=kernel-* to do an update in Fedora?
I was a bit surprised that when I got a new Fedora machine at work (it used to be Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL)), the first time it started up, it asked me to do an update, and I naturally said yes, and for anything it asked, I just used the default answer (usually replying "yes" by pressing ENTER)
I tried putting this in forums that are designed for troubleshooting CentOS but I need an answer asap since they have to review my post before it is even posted.
Here is the issue, I was setting up a test on a CentOS 6.3 machine. I have used it before with no problems and I didn't make any updates or changes (no I did not install anything when this error started).
My linux machine hangs after some period of inactivity (8+ hrs).
Anyone experiencing similar issue.
Kernel Linux 2.6.32-431.el6_x86_64

Any pointers will be helpful.
