I got this problem in the boot process. When I boot my system, just after:
VFS mounted root (ext2 filesystem) readonly
This comes up:
Apr 9 15:23:47 init: version 2.4 booting

welcome to linux 0.99.15.
The Linux version is 1.1.59.
The error happens on both a 386/16 with 5 MBRAM/42MBHD and on a 386/40 8 MBRAM
and 520 MB DOS shared HD. There are just a videocard (EGA or VGA tryed) and
a HD/FD controller in the maschine, sometimes there are also a NE2000 card,
but it dosent seam to change anything if i take it out. I even tryed several
times to reinstal the system even with software from different sites.
All the files in /etc/rc.d, and all the directorys above, has all rights set
for root, and execute rights for everyone else. I changed this so that, the
root (/), /etc, all files in /etc, the directory /etc/rc.d and finally all
files in /etc/rc.d has all rights set, nothing changes.
When I log in as root for the first time after boot, I have to
mount -n -o remount /
mount /proc /proc -t proc
Then the systems works until the next time it is booted.
When I am on the system (as root) I can not execute any file in the /etc/rc.d
directory. If I copy one ore more file from the /etc/rc.d directory, i still
cannot execute it. Everytime i write:
in the /etc/rc.d directory, and everywhere else, I get this error:
bash: ./rc.S: No such file or directory
even though I can edit the file with vi and cat it with
I have looked in all the FAQ I can find, and all the documentation available.
Am I just stuppid, or am I the first in the world to encounter this problem.
Any hint and suggestion is higly apriciatet
