after building an lfs-intel-3.0-pre4 on a slackware based system, useing the
packaged bootscripts so as to avoid my horrible type-o magnatism (evident in
this post i'm sure) i stumbled into a problem.
upon rtfm and searching here and there i have resorted to the vast
rambl...er knowledge of the mailing lists. btw, if this is in the wrong
section, just tell me as i rarely post anything but...
upon booting the newly compiled lfskernel i am greeted with the familiar
scrolling info until i reach something like...
INIT: /dev/initctl is not a fifo
followed by errors that state the functions file in init.d is too big and
eval_whatchamacallit: command not found, loadkeys is too big, loadproc:
command not found, etc and so on. /dev/initctl does exist and really is a
fifo (named pipe) but init doesn't think so. booting with lilo: lfs
init=/sbin/init produced the same thing even after a recompile of sysvinit.
(none) login: does appear after syslogk fails, but upon entering root and
the password it simply does nothing and pops up (none) login: once again.
this is probably something trivial but it has me stumped. thanks in advance
for any guidance.
