CLFS + Upstart is causing me a headache :(


So here is some ground work to start:

1. Built a Pure64 CLFS system using the lastest dev tree with the exception of Sysvinit which was never installed

2. Built into the build the latest version of Upstart

3. Copied upstart scripts from SourceMage (another source distro I have used) and modified slightly to fit what I have installed

So my issue is that I cannot boot into my new system and as yet I have not heard anything back from the upstart dev group mailing list

The last few lines I have on the boot screen are as follows:
Quote:
VFS: Mounted root (ext2 filesystem) readonly on device 8:1.
Freeing unused kernel memory: 400k freed
Freeing unused kernel memory: 1588k freed
hostname used greatest stack depth: 4440 bytes left
init: hostname main process (757) terminated with status 1
mount used greatest stack depth: 4248 bytes left
EXT2-fs (sda1): error: ext2_lookup: deleted inode referenced: 213133
init: mountall main process (756) terminated with status 8
I have also attached the two scripts mentioned, hostname and mountall.

If anyone could assist or point me in the right direction I would be very grateful

cheers

So in case anyone is interested ... it turns out that because the (C)LFS systems install slightly different versions of some apps (hostname for example) that the lines in my
confs were erroring.

To help others who may need to work out what is going on, if you enter "console output" after the "task" stanza you can use echo statements to see where you are up to.
You may need to reboot many times but it does work
