Hi All,

have a script in rc.local that hangs the machine at boot(I was seeing
if the system here at home would do the same as my work PC, which it
did, unfortunately). How can I instruct the boot process not to
process rc.local. Is it possible from the command line to do this, and
could you tell me what the command would be.? Knoppix3.7 doesn't
recognize LVM, so I can't mount the partition and make a change to
rc.local and booting with telinit 3 still gets the hang. Cheers.

I just went through this, and reading through the posts, I'm surprised
no one mentioned this:
Right after the kernel is unpacked in the beginning of boot, you get a
dialogue telling you to press 'I' for interactive mode. Do that, and
each command in the bootup gives you a Y/N dialogue. rc.local should be
the very last command, and it will say something like 'start local? Y|N'
pressing N will bypass rc.local.
