Ask the experts, not me.
vt1 hung endlessly, with a black screen once the daemons had finally all timed
out, and on vt2+, it was impossible to log in. After typing the password, the
system would hang, and then a 60 second timeout would be noted, and hence, no
login was possible. I was forced to alt-SysRq-re to kill the remaining daemons,
I presume, and then I noticed on vt1 that graphical login was taking place, but
on a ro system, hence config files could not be written to, hence each in turn
generating an error. It was a total disaster and took nearly 30 minutes on an
Intel Core 2 Duo processor.
