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
l2:2:wait:/etc/rc.d/init.d/rc 2
l3:3:wait:/etc/rc.d/init.d/rc 3
l4:4:wait:/etc/rc.d/init.d/rc 4
l5:5:wait:/etc/rc.d/init.d/rc 5
l6:6:wait:/etc/rc.d/init.d/rc 6

5:2345:respawn:/sbin/agetty

--noclear tty1 9600
tty2 9600
tty3 9600
tty4 9600
tty5 9600
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?
