After running a whole bunch of updates through Software Update my rev A 12" PB won't boot into the GUI.
What happened is this:
--but remained in the blue screen--stalled.
--I rebooted again
--this time it remained in the gray screen (open firmware)--stalled, no question mark.
--couldn't find the system, I guess
--booted into single user mode and ran fsck
--fsck fixed the file system and then wouldn't exit
--I shut the machine down after 10min
--after that it keeps booting into Console (not single user...CONSOLE)
--disk mounts and I have full login...but no GUI.
I then ran Diskwarrior and it repaired the disk/filesystem/directory errors.
Problem now is that it still boots into Console and I can't get the Diskwarrior CD out of the slot... reboot + mouse click does nothing.
Can't find any unix Eject command either...ran locate and apropos, but nothing shows. I'm confy with the shell, so feel free to advise a unix fix.
Can't do a hardware test until I get the DW cd out...
Any other help greatly appreciated...

When I had purchased bad RAM for my iBook all I got was the console when I powered up. The prompt said something about Darwin.
