Boots to Darwin/BSD screen?

My iBook has been great to me so far....... It boots to the black screen Darwin/BSD and asks me to login and password I do it and it says Welcome to Darwin! Anyway is my HD starting to fail or what. Is there anyway around this so I can get my computer to work?

Did you ever fix this problem? I'm having the same issue on my iBook G4 and it's driving me up a wall.

You should be able to hold down the option key and pick the boot up system you want. If this is something you don't want to happen, go to System Preferences - startup disk and select the operating system you want. If I wanted to get clean, I'd back up using Time Machine to an external drive. Then do as Sterling suggests. I would also try booting into Safe Mode by holding down the Shift key when stating up.

The problem that I saw before was that it was booting from your normal drive, but the boot process was broken.

Yeah, looks like it's booting to the right drive, just not the right UI.

You might be able to fix this with a pram reset (command option p r at boot until the boot chime sounds thrice), but I've had this problem before, and I seem to recall fixing it by reinstalling the OS and/or wiping the hard drive. If I were you, and I had this problem, and reinstalling didn't work, and I had an extra hard drive, I would back up my data and erase/install. If that still doesn't work, say so, and maybe we'll come up with something else.

You can clone your drive to the external via the command line (that's what you're booting into), type this:

sudo rsync -avrogx / /Volumes/[Backup Volume]

Where instead of typing [Backup Volume] type the name of your backup, if it's more than one word, say it's called "Backup Volume, instead of typing:

sudo rsync -avrogx / /Volumes/Backup Volume

type instead:

sudo rsync -avrogx / /Volumes/Backup\ Volume

If your volume is just one word, say "Backup" then that's easy, just type

sudo rsync -avrogx / /Volumes/Backup

Should be a piece of cake.

By the way, if you do not know the name of your drive, type:

ls //Volumes

and it will display the names of all connected drives.

well i did the pram an it almost boot clear an then it came back

to the terminal. Now I have done basic, an unix man pages,

an dos, an straight linux, but the junk that is Darwin/BSD

written by Brian Fox an Chet Ramey does not follow its

own commands. As in if you are at the login that

is no issue it will take your name, an paswrd.

Fine but now where in six hours of sifting threw

gibbrish, verbose or not do the instructions given

actually work. it always ends in this error, or basicly

DOES NOT compute.....hmm what is the point if they

do not give you the commands to exit the black screen

of $^%#
