I am using Fedora 16. I have downloaded MySQL Server and tried to start it; while doing so my Fedora hung. So I shutdown by pressing the power button. When I try to log in next time then this error occurs:

Oh no! Something has gone wrong.A problem has occurred and the system can't recover.Please contact a system administrator

How do I recover my Fedora?

    It says "Unable to recovery please contact your administrator"? That seems unlikely, unless it's a local customization – Michael Mrozek Oct 21 '12 at 2:20

  • Then try again, and come back with the exact error message. Is this after you type your password? – Gilles Oct 21 '12 at 20:45
  • I have edited my post and posted a correct error message. Reopen this post and help me. – Dinesh Subedi Oct 22 '12 at 1:18

    @MichaelMrozek turns out this message wasn't a joke .. Just found a link on google forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=272374 – daisy Oct 22 '12 at 1:33

reboot into single user mode press A when you see the grub menu and add a 1 to the end of your kernel args.

from there you will be able to fix anything you need to
