Unhappy : command not foundXX: during boot (Gentoo)


Kernel: 2.6.16-gentoo-r3
Computer: IBM R40 Laptop

/dev/hda1 = Windows XP Pro NTS
/dev/hda2 = boot ext2
/dev/hda3 = swap
/dev/hda4 = / ext3

I'd appreciate help with this, really! =) During a boot of a fresh install of Gentoo (first boot mentioned in the official install guide), I get these strange error-messages...
Code:
: command not foundxx:
...where "xx" is a one or two digit number. These come in a bunch right after the udev and swap are initialized. Also, they show up again during shutdown. The message ain't showing anything as you can see above, and neither does dmesg (as far as I can tell). I've been trying to reinstall Gentoo clean three times, and I've also tried different versions of the "gentoo-sources"-kernel.

Thoughts as to what I can do are welcome!

Thumbs up Problem solved!

I solved the problem (with a little help I'll admit)!

I did...
Code:
emerge baselayout
...and then...
Code:
etc-update
...and rebooted. All fixed!

Thanks to those who helped me out on IRC!


Cheers,
Nicholas

Probably several scripts are writing in parallel, and the output is getting mixed up together. Post the output itself, with a few lines of context above and below?

Cool

Not needed anymore, but thanks. As I stated above, I've got the problem solved by running "emerge baselayout". =)


Cheers,
Nicholas
