My virtuel (vmware) SLES 11 SP2 hangs on boot. Cant tell what happend before, the server had been up for like 230 days before rebooting.

Main console says Starting syslog services done. And there the server just hangs.
The other says
Jun 16 12:43:42 livm10p kernel ...... audit_printk_skb: 21 callbacks suppressed

- started the installer and run severel repairs - didnt help
- started in rescue mode and have run mkinitrd, no problem mounting filsystem from rescue mode
- tried to install a new (older) kernel (maybee not good?)

Have no clue what to do next.
