Fuduntu won't boot. Says "Starting cpupower..... Error setting new values" at bootup

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I installed Fuduntu 2013.2 and after updating it, it no longer boots up. All I get is the spiral loading indicator. I press CTRL ALT F2 to get the terminal and log in as root then try to do an "Init 5". It attempts to bootup but all I get is this:



This happens in both Vmware and when running a full installation from the hard drive.

EDIT: instead of typing Init 5, when I type Startx I can get to the desktop just fine.

Since "startx" works but init 5 doesn't work, that says to me that something is attempting to start at runlevel 5 that doesn't start at the runlevel you're at when you run "init 5" (I would assume runlevel 3). At any rate, from the image you posted it looks like the issue is the cpupower startup. You can verify this is the case with
Code:
chkconfig --list
If cpupower starts at all runlevels (excluding 0,1, and 6 of course) then the issue is probably with how your desktop environment interacts with cpupower. You could use cpufreq instead to get the same functionality in most cases. If all else fails you can just disable cpupower on runlevel like so:
Code:
chkconfig cpupower off --level 5
NOTE: I'm assuming the service name is cpupower since that's what it says it's trying to start, but since I'm not a fuduntu user I don't know for sure. Check /etc/init.d or the output of
Code:
chkconfig --list
to be sure you have the correct service name

Why does HAL fail? Try "yum install hal" as root, in case it's had some kind of issue with an update of itself or a dependency
