First boot problem: Init Id "3" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes
 
Hi guys.

I have finished with LFS and at reboot it should work. I can select my LFS system from GRUB ( I reconfigured my old one ). But the boot process stops after a while, and I get:

Quote:

INIT: Id "3" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes
INIT: no more processes left in this runlevel

INIT: Id "4" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes
INIT: Id "1" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes
INIT: Id "2" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes
After about ten minutes output switchs from , for example, INIT: Id "4".. to INIT: Id "1"..and so on. After half an hour I give up.
I have no possibilities to write any command. I can only reboot the computer and go where I built everything, trying to solve the problem.

But..How? Ideas?

Thanks for answers.

This normally indicates an error/typo in your /etc/inittab file.

Use your host or a liveCD to access and rectify it.

This is my inittab:

But it seems to be exatly the same of the book..

Don't know which book you are using, but that is wrong.

Assuming you use LFS 7.2, have a look here for the correct one:7.7.1. Configuring Sysvinit

I don't really know. I have 7.2, I copied it from there. However, it's solved. And now everything it's OK! Thanks!
