Getting weird message changing init levels --- HELP!

Post by Freedom (Kris Pa » Fri, 26 Apr 1996 04:00:00

I am getting this error every time that I switch init levels. It is
annoying when I reboot, but also I can't switch to another init level and
still use the console.

I am running Redhat 3.0.3 on a pentium 75, with kernel 1.3.94.

Any suggestions?

1. Errors during init level change -- HELP

I am having a problem when I switch init levels after the computer has
booted up. It boots up fine to which ever run level I make default, but
then if I try to change to a different run level or reboot I get this
error repeated thousands of times:

init: error reading initrequest

This is very annoying and makes it where I must reboot the machine because
the console becomes unavailable due to these thousand messages.

I am running redhat 3.0.3 and I believe this happened when I upgraded my
initscripts to initscripts-2.5-2.i386.rpm. I have looked through these
files but I can not find the problem.

Anyone have any suggestions?
