I have upgraded from 1.2.13 to 2.0 & was in the process of upgrading the
associated files. Last nite I upgraded to util-linux-2.5.tar.gz, & when I
rebooted I got a "syslogd: unknown priority "24"" error and my system hung.
My only edits to MCONFIG were setting HAVE_SVSVINIT & HAVE_SVIVINIT_UTILS
to yes, my intent was to next update these using sysvinit-2.6.2.tar.gz.
The compilation of util-linux-2.5 went OK unitl an error on cal.c for not
having /usr/include/localeinfo.h. I looked at the Makefile for the section
with cal.c & saw that cal was the only thing which complained about this so I
removed cal from the Makefile in the misc-utils directory. The make then
worked fine (just using "make"). I then did "make install" & rebooted & got
Starting daemons: cron lpd
fcntl_setlk() called by process41(cron) with broken flock() emulation
/bin/hostname Permission denied
syslogd: unknown priority "24" " error
Now the system will not boot!
Is there something obvious that I did wrong? My (uneducated) guess is that
should have updated the sysvinit-2.6.2 stuff BEFORE rebooting. I had
previously never upgraded either the linux-utils or the sysvinit stuff
since I did my initial install from the Yggdrasil Fall 94 distr.
The obvious question now is how do I fix this?
How I got there:
http://www.signet.com.sg/~sunsurf & installed the following packages in this
order (I already had gcc 2.7.2):
2.0 kernel compilation
I rebooted & everything worked fine. I then began updating the other
procinfo-? (oops, don't remember this vesion)
I rebooted & this is where the show-stopping syslogd error occurred.
Any suggestions are much appreciated!
