Trouble with /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit root mount

Trouble with /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit root mount

Post by leif_lundg.. » Sat, 30 Jan 1999 04:00:00

I am having problem with booting my system, linux-2.0.36.

My /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit checks that the disks are ok, with fsck.
After that the root, /, is remounted in read-write mode. That is where is
trouble starts.

The PATH at that points includes /bin where mount resides.

The errormessages that are displayed are, depending on how I try
to call mount:

mount -> command not found
/bin/mount -> No such file or directory

ls -F /bin/mount at the point yields /bin/mount* so it ought to be

If I sulogin at that point I can manually remount / and contiune startup.

Can anyone easy spot my mistake?

1. difference between /etc/rc.sysinit and /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit ?

What is the difference between /etc/rc.sysinit and /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit?
I am using Redhat 8. I did a diff on them and they are identical.
/etc/rc.sysinit is apparently a copy of /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit since it
says that it is that file, even though it's not (see below).

# /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit - run once at boot time

I want to change something in whichever of these scripts is run at
bootup, but I don't know which one gets run.


2. Any Raid Contoller Support?

3. which user does /etc/rc.d/rc.local / rc.sysinit run as?

7. RH7.3: LVM & /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit

10. /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit: /proc/sys/kernel/sysrq: No such file or directory
