BusyBox can't open /etc/profile

BusyBox can't open /etc/profile

Post by Sa » Fri, 16 Aug 2002 08:32:57



Hi everyone

I am a 6-hour newbie! I've just installed the Red hat 7.3.
Installation was smooth and complete. Apparently, the network card is
the only thing which was not recognized.

Problem:
After first boot, I received a message to configure the Network
Device. I tried but each time end to an error message. I skipped it.
Then it showed " Please press Enter to activate this console"
Pressing Enter, returned this:

"Couldn't open file /etc/profile'
BusyBox  v0.51 (2001.05.10-17:06+0000) Built-in shell (lash)
Enter help' .

I stuck to  /# , and commands like  startx  anb Xconfigurator return
error message. I have no access to GUI.

I use a boot manager and there are Win Me and 2000 on this HD.

Is there any problem in installation or in me?

Any help is appreciated.
Sam

 
 
 

1. Telnet login doesn't run /etc/profile or $HOME/.profile

Hi,

A minor but irritating problem I'm having with my system (Linux-FT 1.1,
kernel 1.2.13, Pentium 90). When logging in from a remote machine by
telnet (e.g. MS-telnet in Windoze for workgroups), the telnet correctly
logs the user in, complete with starting the right shell etc, but doesn't
run /etc/profile or $HOME/.profile, so the paths, prompts and environment
variables don't get set correctly.

I'm a bit puzzled by telnet logins : they don't seem to be handled by a
getty, so I presume the telnet daemon is responsible for negotiating the
login. So, is this a problem with telnet daemon configuration, or a
compile option, or just not possible ? The telnet and telnetd man pages
are very sparse and don't say anything about this. I also couldn't find
anything in the NET-HOWTO or network configuration guide.

Any advice very gratefully received,

Steve
