Lightbulb Boot Error in LFS


Hi
While booting LFS for the first time, the following error occured. What should I do ..

mount:/ not mounted already or bad option

and
Cannot check root filesystem because it could not be mounted in read only mode.

I followed step-step instructions in book. Where could be the problem ?

In etc/fstab or in etc/lilo.conf

Regards and anticipating a reply from ur end .

My guess would be in /etc/fstab. Post its contents if you can.

The fstab looks ok, so long as the partitions are correct.

The errors you describe tell me you're having a problem with fsck. Since it doesn't look like an fstab problem, then the bootscripts are next in line.

So, did you make any changes to the boot scripts?

Did you encounter any errors while making the LFS system?

no not at all. infact everything was fine. during the initial installation , bash was found problematic but then looking to the archives of lfs, the problem was corrected.

i just followed each instruction line by line, because it's my first LFS installation.

Hmmmm... Is it possible for you to post the exact error message you get when you boot? If you could post the error and maybe one or two lines of the startup output, that might shed some more light.
