LFS first time boot fails with init error
 
Hi All,

Today i completed the LFS build and booted into it. I got stuck up with an error for which I didn't get any answer which I can use to proceed or debug the issue.

After booting into LFS, the boot stops with the below error,

init: Id "6" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 mins.

I booted several times and the number after Id keeps changing.

Here the how my /etc/inittab looks

# Begin /etc/inittab
id:3:initdefault:
si::sysinit:/etc/rc.d/init.d/rc S
l0:0:wait:/etc/rc.d/init.d/rc 0
l1:1:wait:/etc/rc.d/init.d/rc 1

tty6 9600
# End /etc/inittab

Any help to identify issue would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Your inittab doesn't look like the one shown in chapter 7.7.1.

BTW: Which LFS version is this?

The inittab had problems. Thanks for pointing it out.

The issue has been resolved.

Thanks
