Boot errors, a little help needed.


Hi guys, i,m back

Only took 8 hrs this time.

Anyways, i,m having a few problems, with eroor messages while booting, they seem to be with the usb, network and setting the clock, so here goes

First one

/etc/rc.d/rcsysinit.d/S40mountfs returned a value of 96
mount: mount point /proc/bus/usb doesnt exist.

Now its probably got something to do with the fact that there,s nothing in /proc , but i,m not quite sure what its looking for?

the second is this...

/etc/sysconfig/network-devices/ifconfig
** no such file or directory **

which is correct, as I havnt got a network card installed yet, I would just like to disable the message.

The third one...

Setting clock...
modprobe: modprobe :Cant locate module char-major-10-135

Ok thats all as far as the problems go.

Another question though, when I recompile the kernel am I supposed to delete the modules?

Thx guys

if /proc is empty then you need to look at the /etc/rc.d/rcsysinit.c directory - if you didn't change the LFS bootscripts, there is a symlink called S20mountproc - make sure this is a valid symlink. Try to run the script manually as root and see what happens.

About the ifconfig error - if you don't have a network card, you shouldn't even be running the network script. It's useless and will cause errors (this is explained in the book). Remove the network symlink from the rc3.d directory.

About char-major-10-135: read the FAQ at http://linuxfromscratch.org/faq/

Hi again

Yeah I,m going to disable the network script, and I can probably figure the clock, has a quick peek at the hint, but this USB problem doesnt seem to want to go away.

I tried what you said, run the S40mountfs script, and I get the same message.

Whilst my system was running I cd,d into proc to have a look.

There was a whole buch of stuff there, including bus which I cd,d into and all I could see was pci.

I also had a look in driver and uhci was there, so my USB is actually being recognised.

One more thing, I checked out the fstab file on my Mandy 8.2 box, and that doesnt even have a USB line in it????? just wondering why that is.

Thx for the help though, its appreciated.

p.s. I managed to install XFree86-4.2, which works like a dream, got a clock (wrong time though hehe) and xterm I now also have the hang of VIM, so its been worthwhile allready.

Okay if /proc contains data but there's not the USB part that you need, then it means you did not enable the "preliminary USB file system support" option in the kernel (under the USB submenu).

Guess what, your right

I hadnt enabled USB Filesystem support, and its now working, thx lfslinux.

I,ve even managed to sort out my clock, although its an hour fast, not sure why, I set it up as in the hint, with the start stop scripts, and chose Europe/London as my TZ, the bios time is set to GMT and the UTC is set to one, so it should be correct.

Anyone got any idea,s for me to try.

Now its time for a desktop manager, not sure which one yet though, any thoughts anybody?.

L8rs Guys

Thx again

I found Fluxbox nice and easy to install (only a few dependancies) and it is fast and functional.
